Hi, Does anyone know, How many photographs a digital camera can take, in theory??

Suppose a 10megapixel Camera.

As far as i know there are 252 different choices of colour/shade per megapixel.

if that's the case the total permutations would be 252 to the power of 10,000,000.

Not sure if my understanding of digital cameras is correct, perhaps someone can enlighten me.

I just think it's interesting that a digital camera can pretty much cature any image a human eye can see.

I once calculated in my head that the physical size of a harddrive used to store every permutation(not combination) would be about as big as the Solar System.
