Re: it is an estimate.

I just don't understand why It detects the 64gb when I pull out the CF just fine- but when they are both in there, it only shows 707 shots- even though I have 64+32! I shoot events and generally get no more than 1200 shots- in which case the 64gb was going to suit me JUST fine for RAWS.. Now with it saying 707, I'm wondering why I wasted my money on a high-end/large card..

There's gotta be something not in the manual to explain this weirdness!! :/

Maybe it's just the estimate that is wrong, thrown off by the two different card sizes. Have you tried actually filling the card? Perhaps the everything will work exactly as you want, just with the number of remaining shots reported inaccurately.
