"Question on deleting files NEF vs JPG" Mon 15-Oct-12 01:43 PM by Hansvg
I got confused last weekend... Camera programmed as follows: Image quality RAW+JPEG Fine Primary slot CF (Secondary slot SD) Secondary slot function: RAW primary, JPEG secondary So, RAW go to CF, JPEG go to SD. Now if I delete an image from the camera, it turns out that only the RAW on the CF card is deleted. In a way it makes sense as the RAW image is the one displayed on the camera's display. But somehow it is confusing that in the end "deleted" images are still available on the SD card. Am I missing something?
PS. If the camera is programmed for RAW primary+JPEG secondary while image quality is on RAW only, a copy of the RAW image will be stored on both cards. One would expect secondary card function to be automatically set for "Backup", because that is what this is...

Hi, I usually set mine up like you did - primary CF card RAW and secondary SD card jpeg . When you want to delete a picture, ensure that you are looking a the correct picture ( is it the RAW picture on the CF card or the jpeg picture on the SD card). Look at the bottom of your LCD and it will say which card the picture is on. If it is on the CF card and you want to delete from the SD card, you will need to scroll through all the CF pictures to get to the pictures on the SD card.
Just remember you have 2 images - one on each card. i hope this helps
