D7100 card capacity number of images to record
7 months ago


I just bought D7100 and inserted 2 SD cards into it as follows: slot 1 32GB card and slot 2 16GB card. Set picture quality to uncompressed 14 bit NEF only and set card two to overflow. LCD indicates that only 600 images can be recorded. Why? BTW I formatted both cards in the camera.

I looked at the card capacity and it shows 29.9GB, each NEF is approximately 29.5 MB, so according to my calculations I should be able to record about 1000 images on 32GB card in slot 1. Is my camera defective?

Thank you!
