E-3 RAW Count vs. Actual Way Off
I couldnt find this in any other threads, but I was wondering if anyone has ever noticed that the E-3's RAW exposure counter is way off from actual? I use 16GB CF cards in both of mine, and when formatted, both E-3s show 987 RAW exposures.
However, I shot a burlesque festival last weekend (with a rented 35-100--WOW) and used up two cards completely--but each card recorded 1,555 RAW exposures... wtf?
I never noticed this before because I rarely ever used a whole card, and thus never paid attention, but this has me baffled... : / thoughts?
it is a worst case estimate. look at your RAWs they are all different sizes because they compress at different rates. no way the camera can guess what you are going to shoot
