ButterflySkies: My personal experience disagres with this study.
I have hundreds of moments where I wished I had a camera back then and took a picture, because its just a fuzzy memory to me now.
And I don't think I have any memory issues with moments I took a picture, and if I have, I have images to look at.
And there is that road trip I did 10 years ago where I remember the images I took, I don't remember the actual moments, but I do remember the images, which helps me rememeber the actual moments, and I lost thoes image like 8 years ago.
I did another road trip 7 years ago, and I didn't have a camera with me that time, and I can't remember much of it at all. But my sister had a camera, and looking through her images helps me remember alot.
So in my case, I do rememeber more with images, especially when I view them multiple times in the edit-sort-storage process.

This is my experience exactly. When you have a poor memory to begin with, 50 year-old pictures are all you have left to enjoy. Just have your photographic memory relatives fill in the blanks!
