Re: D800 showing incorrect card capacity

I am surprised that the image content effects the file size, I would have assumed that a file of an image of a given resolution and bit depth would always contain the same amount of data no matter what the content. My D700 always accurately shows how many shots are left on the card. I don't understand why the D800 always reports the same 400 image capacity for a card that clearly has a much greater capacity.

It's not a show stopper but it is irritating that on such an advanced camera something so basic if not working properly.

Thanks for the responses by the way.
