But of course!

The latter is close enough to my Canon's data consumption rate ... and 
the 192GB in CF cards which I paid only (yes, got lucky) $100 for affords
over 5,000 exposures (in RAW+JPG).

For the D800, it gets a bit over 800 shots out of each 64GB card, and 192GB 
works out to roughly 2,500 shots.  That's 10 days @ 250/day...enough capacity yet?

Sorry, but since it can be shot & stored, the number of GB for storage for 1,000 shots is simple

And at ~$1/GB (retail), the estimated acquisition cost is quite straightforward too.

This isn't a technology barrier - it's merely cost...and as I said, memory cars are profoundly
today than even but just a few years ago.  

And frankly, when we dropping $2K for a body or $1K for a lens, why should spending 
+$100 for having a 1,000 magazine depth (or +$200 for 2K) be such an whinefest?

Ditto if one considers including travel & vacation expenses ... and even one's PC too...
