Number of images on a 2GB CF card
Jun 13, 2008

Hi all,

I just have a question about the number of images I should be able to fit on a 2GB CF card.

If I set RAW+JPEG (Fine), JPEG size to Large, Compressed RAW off and JPEG Compression optimized for size, I get an estimate of 88 images. By setting NEF Compression to on, this goes up to around 118 images.

On my D80 with RAW+JPEG(Fine) and JPEG size set to large I get an estimate of 218 images. I cannot see options for JPEG Compression optimization or RAW Compression, but I can't see this making nearly 100 images of difference.

Can anyone explain this discrepancy to me? I'm very lost!

Thanks,

Wayne
