  • [Question] How many pictures do you take each visit?

    I have gotten totally out of control and snap them up like a pacman in a starfield.

    I wasn't alway like this, but digital and memory cards of the gigabites sizes has me going nuts.

    1000 plus these days.

    What about you?

    I've set a poll for those who just want to provide a quick answer, but I'd love to read about it too.

    I can't answer the poll but I can share what I do. It ranges from trip to trip. I was there last weekend and took 20 lol. In June I took 700. I love taking photos but it does depend on my mood if I bust out my DSLr vs my point and shoot.

      It varies for me.

      I take many one day trips throughout the year. On those trips, I wanna get on rides, and enjoy Disneyland for the limited amount of time I have, so I usually don't take that many pictures.

      Though on 3+ day trips, I take more pictures, since we can stop and smell the roses, without trying to get on everything.

        Depends on my mood, but usually around 300 in a day. Unless it's something like my first visit to Carsland, where I expect I will fill my memory card (752 shots) and need a second one. Coming home, I sort through them and delete probably 90% of the shots, so I can post only the best ones to Flickr.

          None actually. I don't even bring a camera to Disneyland because 1) You can find a picture of every square inch of Disneyland somewhere on the internet that is 1000x better than a picture I would take and 2) I'd rather be experiencing my life with my own eyes rather than saving it to look at later on a screen.

          I do, however, use Photopass, but only when I'm meeting characters.

            I went with 100-500 which is a wide spread. Usually I got for at least 3 days and take about 50 per day, but don't always bring a camera. So some days I take 0 or just a few with my phone. Still over 3 days of longer I break the 100 photo mark, but rarely get to 500+. I'm not a person who tries to document every aspect of the resort, just taking picture of my family having fun and preserving the memories.

              Taking photos is one more element of my vacation that makes it fun and happy. I remember, one of my vacations, I think it was 2006 when I damaged my camera by spilling water on it. The vacation took on a different slant after that.

                    100's of Photos!!! I remember the days when 35mm was the camera of choice; all film had to be processed. Remember that kiddies? Opening up your envelop of 36 color prints, flipping thru them; loser, loser, out of focus, to dark, loser, loser, oh that ones nice, out of focus, loser, over-exposed, who is that? Maybe 5-6 keepers from 36 shots, those were the days...

                      Oh, I don't have time for taking pictures at DLR! I'm too busy freaking out that I'm in Disneyland and dancing down Main Street singing the "Life's A Happy Song" from the Muppet Movie.

                        It depends on which camera I have with me. If I have my point and shoot, then I take around 5-10 pictures. If I have my bigger camera, then I take over 100.

                        I remember those You couldn't take a picture of just anything unless you had a ton of rolls of film with you or were willing to go into one of the shops to buy more. Even then it was a pain carrying around all those rolls. I do think the quality of film pictures is nicer than digital, but I love the convenience of digital photos. Those were the days.

                          I started taking pictures during the film days. Developed my own stuff at the school lab. Printed my own. Watching it come up in the developer....

                          Digital is awesome for the convenience and that I can take a zillion photos without worrying about capacity. My learning curve has increased enormously with immediate feedback. Love it.

                            I average between 500 to 600 per day. Last trip was over 5200 photos, all in RAW.

                              I normally take between 500-1000 pics on a visit. I take time to myself to go into the park, take my time, and snap some of the "extras" that most people overlook.

                                We take hundreds of photos, but the best Disney memories are the videos we made when the kids were young. One trip to DL, I created a storyboard that the Disneyland version of Candy Land had cards that would take you from our living room to various lands at DL, and we'd magically appear there. Gets more fun to watch every year!

                                  This thread reminded me to buy my photopass plus deal. I think I will really only be taking pictures of details and things I haven't noticed before, because the standard photos will be in that stock CD I get.

                                    Probably 50-100. I've been to the park so many times, it seems like overkill to keep snapping pictures of the same stuff. I'm definitely a photo pass fan, though, since it is usually the only way to get a good quality group photo. I usually take random videos of little things in the park that I love, like the newsreels in the Indiana Jones queue, the laughing place section of Splash Mt., and the clock room at the end of Pinocchio.

                                      When last we visited Disneyland we were around 800 photographs over five days, which seemed like a lot until I realized there were lots and lots of things we just didn't capture on film!

                                        Sure, I've got a lot of shots of the park, but there's always something new that catches my eye, or from a different angle. And of course, Carsland is still new to me, so lots of opportunities there! I'm planning to bring a second memory card for that day.
