Try setting the camera to shoot NEF's + jpgs, and since space is a concern for you, set the jpg size to basic. If you use a separate card for the jpgs, will they be in a different folder when you download them?

Hello Mr. Misner,
On my second go at it (after the first 2GB card), I did decide to set it on NEFs + Basic Jpeg with Small, and Compression set at Size Priority.  It's amazing how much room that saves.   Those 36MP jpegs are quite big! Haha.

I do set them to go into a separate card, as I read someone did that for if the NEFs should crash, they would still have the JPEGs as back up.  Oh, when I download them, I put them in the same folder.

Thank you,
