Thanks for the info and the post - I think this could be handy when using an eye-fi card (SD) to record and transfer low res previews to laptop for client on shoot previews and also shooting RAW to CF card as well. Thus the RAW you don't have to slow down proceedings by transferring the RAW files over eye-fi

If you do this, consider saving RAW + small jpeg to both cards.  The Eye-fi can be configured to only transmit jpeg.  If you save the same format to both cards, it greatly speeds up processing time and avoids filling the buffer as quickly.  If you save different formats to each card, the opposite happens (even though it is just a small jpeg).
