SDHC

Hi all,

Was using a 32gb SD card in my D5000. Empty, it had about 8k exposures for JPEG normal (4k fine, 2k raw - estimated). I just got a 128 gb and it's showing 16k JPEG normal, 8k fine, and 4k raw. Is this to be expected? I would have expected roughly 4 times the capacity going from the 32gb to the 128gb, not just 2.

Thanks

Is it an SDHC card? D5000 doesn't support the SDXC cards so might get limited
