debbymom said...

Hmm one week stay you say ... 6 days, one set up an hour x 10 hours day =60 set ups x maybe 60 frames per set up 3,600 ... then double that because digital is cheap, and you only get one chance to be in that moment. Okay I say 7,001. Though I notice you didn't say how many cameras were clicking away. If there is another camera that number is going to go through the roof of the cottage!!

Anonymous said...

As fast as a camera can shoot, I will say they took 4987 pics. Probably more than that!
