Mark IV card recording

I know on my D3s I can record JPEG on one card and RAW on the other card. From reading the Mark IV owners manual it doesn't appear that is an option. It looks like the SD card is only for standard recording, auto switching when the CF card becomes full, simultaneous recording of the same settings, or recording seperately using different sizes on each card. In all cases it sounds like you can't record JPEG on one and RAW on the other. If I am not understanding this correctly and you can record the different modes on different cards let me know how. Thanks..

Re: Mark IV card recording

This is covered on Page 57 of the 1D4 Instruction Manual under Rec Separately.

"You can set the image size to be recorded for each card. Each image is recorded to both the CF and SD cards at the image size you have set. The image size can be set freely to L and M2 or RAW and mRAW for example."

This is a bit unclear to me, but I take it to mean that you can record, say RAW on your CF card and JPEGs on your SD card (which is how I'd like to do it).

Can anyone corroborate this with first hand experience?

Hi John

Quote from the white paper.

With the CF card,SD/SDHC memory card,and external media,the following
recording functions can be used:
(1) Standard
•Noautomatic switching of recording media.
(2) Automatic switching of recording media
•When the current recording media becomes full,it switches to another
recording media automatically and continues recording.
(3) Separate recording
•Set the desired image size (L,M1,M2,S,RAW,M-RAW,S-RAW) for each
recording media before shooting.

•The image size set for one captured image will be applied to all the recording media.
(4) Recording of identical images
•The same image is recorded to all recording media.(Also possible with
RAW+JPEG.)
•Movies cannot be recorded simultaneously to multiple recording media.
•If simultaneous recording has been set,movies will be recorded to the

recording media set with [Play] on the [Recording func+media/folder sel.] screen.

•If a still photo is taken during movie shooting and (3) or (4) has been set,the still
photo will be recorded to each recording media in the image size that was set.

Yes, I can corroborate. To "me" it was not real clear from the documentation exactly how to do it, but I muddled thru and now save RAW on my Extreme Pro CF, and L jpeg on SD Extreme.

Thanks, I will continue to fiddle until I get that combination. Agreed that it is worded kind of round about without specific instructions or a specific selection like the Nikon is.
