D800 - two card set-up for Eye-Fi
8 months ago

Hi. I recently bought an 8Gb EyeFi Mobi SD card to use with my D800. Small Basic jpegs are sent to the EyeFi Mobi card, raws are sent to a CF card. The CF card is designated the Primary slot.

It seems that when I review images on the camera's LCD, I'm being shown the Small Basic jpeg, not the full size nef. I want to see the full size image to check for focus. How can I set this up?

Also is it possible to do a 2-button format and format both cards simultaneously?

it should do this by default, check the file name on the LCD to make sure you are looking a the JPEG or nef

No, it will take two formats to the best of my knowledge

When I cycle thru my photos, I notice the CF in the lower left portion of the screen information. when i get to the last photo, then the next photo will be on the SD card. It will switch back and forth at the end of each batch of photos. I believe that even with NEF, you only are seeing the jpg portion of it. If you want to check for focus, zoom in on it.

I am very, very easily amused.

Thank you both for your explanations. It seems to be working now. I hadn't understood that Image Review would cycle through one card and then the other.

How about the D800's estimate of shots remaining. Is that referring to the Primary card? Can it be toggled to show shots remaining on the Secondary card?

Thanks!
