How many memory sticks do you bring with your camera?

or I should say what size of the memory stick do you bring? I usually just bring two of them, one is 128MH which came withe digital camera and 2 GB that I had it seperately, I mostly just use the bigger volume one, if I finish it, I will use the rest of the small one. But most of the time the 2 GB is very good enough if I just go to one place to take some pictures, probably not enough for traveling to other countries though. What about you?

Some of the new memory sticks have up to 16 GB and bringing one of those to any occasion is definitely enough. But for me, I don't take that much pictures so one 2 GB memory stick is enough for me.

I have a 6MP camera. I have two cards: a 1GB card and a 256MB card. I'm pretty careful about copying my pictures to my computer when I get back home from wherever I was shooting, so I've never had a problem with running out of space on the 1GB. I know a lot of times the camera will right a bit quicker to smaller cards, so some people recommend using multiple smaller cards rather than one big card (plus, that way you're not "putting your eggs in one basket;" if one card goes bad, you don't lose everything). But the two cards listed above have worked out fine for me.

I tend to have a 1 GB card in my camera and one or two 2 gb ones in the camera case. I have a 2 gb one as well for my picture frame and a 2 gb one for my nintendo wii and a few 32 mb ones that came with various cameras i use to give grandma pictures for her photo frames.
