First D800 Shots - HUGE file sizes
Jun 28, 2012

Finally got my D800 and love it so far.. Biggest issue I can see is the file size.. Got a 32 GB CF San Disk Extreme Pro card to go with it, and it can basically only hold 400 images, or maybe 475 at 12 Bit, compressed, which is insane.. I don't want to shoot JPEG's, but 475 images on a $140 memory card isn't going to get me very far while traveling... am I missing something? It seems like exposure count doesn't calculate very fast/well when I adjust the compression settings.. concerned as I'm going on a 5 day trip to Cuba, and can't imagine taking less than 200-300 shots per day.. battery life may be another issue given how quickly the battery seems to die compared to my D90..

attached some of my first attempts with it last night (there are compressed JPEGS)
