Victor why shoot RAW and JPEG to one card when the camera has 2 slots ?

Because in order to use both slots I have to use two kinds of cards. I use compact flash cards. In order to use both, I'd have to purchase SD cards. Also, as has been pointed out several times, write speed is faster with CF only than with both cards in camera. Having said that, even if it is slower, the time to save all the files might be better with two cards since they would be done in parallel instead of serially. If I had appropriate SD cards to test with, I'd conduct such a test, but I don't.
