Re: First D800 Shots - HUGE file sizes

Magic cards?? How did you come to that conclusion? Did you even read what i wrote? I said 14-bit Lossless Compressed format. The average size of a 14-bit lossless compressed file is 42 MB. Divide 32GB by 42MB. What do you get? If you don't get 762 your calculator is broke.

How are you doing your math? The average size of a 14-bit lossless compressed RAW file is about 42 MB. My math says you should get over 700 photos per card. In fact I took my D800 on a vacation trip and got 1500 RAW files on two 32GB cards.
