"Maximizing memory usage (for me)"


Parksville, British Columbia, CA
          

Hi All,

I prefer, at least for the time being, to record images as RAW files. I dump the JPEGS. I do this for a variety of reasons, the main one being I want to "start at the beginning and slowly work my way through each image and learn what is happening at each step to the process.

I am not interested at all, at this time, in even recording JPEG files. I have set my second memory card to overflow. But the camera is still storing JPEGS. I am heading off for a short vacation which will have many opportunities to take photos. But I will not be able to process them until I return. I am trying to maximize the use of my memory cards.

Any suggestions as to how I can remove the JPEGs being recorded? Failing that, I will have no computer, and will need to edit the memory in camera. Any suggestions or guidance on this matter, would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
David

See pages 85-88 of the English manual. Sounds like you currently have the camera configured to save both the NEF and the JPG files when you just want the NEF files.

Hi Joseph,

I thought that I had suppressed usage of JPEG files. But I had not. Your reply prompted me to go back and check what my configuration was, and sure enough it was RAW+JPEG. I did switch the configuration, but I forgot to confirm it. Thanks so much for your reply, I really appreciate it.

If memory is not too tight, consider recording JPGs if you are developing a workflow. By having both images up, a rendered NEF file and its JPG at the same time you can see if you are improving on the really good JPG rendering engine in the camera. Using LR or Photoshop will mean you will start with pretty different versions of the same image. If you are using Nikon software, they display the rendered NEF file with all the camera settings in effect so keeping a JPG is not needed.
