How Many Pics Can Hold on 128GB?
How many photos can 128GB hold? I can probably give you the answer that everyone knows, it can HOLD A LOT! If you are using your phone or DSLR camera, that card is more than enough storage space, but it is still cool to know how much pics can fit on it.

Below I have crafted a little table that will show you how many pictures you can expect to store on a 128GB memory card.

How Many Pics Can Fit on 128GB?

Before we get into the information, you should be aware that the numbers are estimated (off real world file sizes). The memory card could hold a lot more or less, it really depends on variety of factors, such as file size, the megapixel of the camera, if the memory card has other data and much more.

Estimates used:
1 MP = 1,000,000 pixels
1MB = 1,000,000 bytes, 1GB = 1,000MB
JPEG 100% Quality = Visually lossless JPEG compression with 1:10 ratio of RAW image

Photos – Compressed (JPEG 100% quality) Images per card. (info by Sandisk)


Megapixels File size (MB) 128GB
4MP 1.2 91552
5MP 1.5 73240
6MP 1.8 61032
7MP 2.1 52312
8MP 2.4 45776
10MP 3.0 36620
12MP 3.6 30516
14MP 4.2 26156
16MP 4.8 22888
22MP 6.6 16644

If you are going to be shooting RAW with your DSLR, then you already know that the memory card is going to hold a lot less pics, simply because the photos are not going to be compressed.

4MP 12.0 9152
5MP 15.0 7324
6MP 18.0 6100
7MP 21.0 5228
8MP 24.0 4576
10MP 30.0 3660
12MP 36.0 3048
14MP 42.0 2612
16MP 48.0 2288
22MP 66.0 1664

Now that you are finished, I hope that I was able to paint a proper picture as it relates to many pics can be stored on a 128GB memory card. 128GB is a lot of space and I honestly don’t think you are going to need a bigger memory card, but if you feel you need more for your phone or camera, bigger cards exist and that should be ideal for you.
