file size can vary widely with the content of the photo. The camera will
estimate larger file sizes than you'll see on average simply for the sake of
safety ("Hey, you said I could get 12 more shots, and I only got 11!").
I used a D300 for a day, and out of a hundred shots, the average file size
was 2.4 megs - individual sizes were as low as 1.8 or 1.9 megs, with most
being 2.1-2.5, and certain shots were as large as 4.3 megs.
