The weekend before Halloween I will be attending a huge rave in Houston. There are going to be crowds of elaborate, colorful costumes, light shows... you know it's a rave and it's a Halloween rave! I am so glad I bought this phone with it's magnificent camera. We will probably be there for at least 6 hours and I plan to take hundreds of pics and videos. I want to use maximum resolution but I am afraid I will run out of space quickly on this 32gb phone. Especially if taking videos. They don't allow anything inside except small items so there is no way to lug a laptop or tablet in there and so won't be able to offload stuff with the data cable. I know I'm going to run out of space at some point and I expect the later it gets the weirder it will get in there.
Any ideas?

A simple idea that you might not like too much.

Don't use the phone, use a proper compact digital instead.

At this kind of event, your stylishly expensive phone may well do any one of the following:-

* Run out of battery juice
* Get dropped
* Get stamped on after being dropped
* Get lost
* Get stolen
* Run out of storage

If you burn through all the devices memory in 6hrs, I'll be impressed. That, and you'll be taking so many pics/vids, I'm not sure how you could actually enjoy the event.

Bitrate of 1080p 30fps video recorded by the 1020 is 20.3Mbps, which equates to 9.1GB/hour. If your 32GB phone is pretty empty you should have 20-25GB of free space, which is enough for about 2 to 2.5 hours of video. That may or may not be a lot depending on your situation.

If you want to take a lot of video, consider shooting at 720p instead.

Ok I guess I'm overreacting, 20 GB would be hard to fill that fast. I'm going to get the camera grip that's an excellent idea. The phone came with a lanyard loop so maybe I can attach it to a retractable id reel.

Immediately delete any photos and videos which don't make the grade. Easier said than done when you want to keep taking shots but perhaps when you're having a break go through the gallery to weed out any weak images.
