As a complete newbie, I've just bought a camcorder for an upcoming holiday. (Going to Zimbabwe for 4 weeks.) My silly question is .. how many tapes do you think I'll need? I know the obvious answer .. (see subject but I'd just like to get a ballpark figure. E.g. For 35mm film, experience tells me I average 18 snaps a day plus 3-4 extra rolls in reserve. So, when you're on holiday do you tend to record 1 hour a day? 10 minutes? Is there a reasonable average? Apologies for the vagueness of the question ... I hope it's offset a little by the extreme depth of my ignorance and complete lack of experience.
