I am new to the DSLR world, just bought a Nikon D5000 and I have a question (maybe silly) about the internal memory and the quantity of shots that can be taken in burst mode.
With the size of photos set to small and quality to low, the viewfinder reports about 2 shots for internal storage (Indicator shows r02). Is this right? I expected a small number when you shoot RAW and jpg together at Fine quality and large size, but at the lowest settings shouldn't it show at least a two-figure number?
>Nikon D5000 has NO built-in internal memory. You have to use >an SD Card to store your photos.
I apologise, maybe I wasn't clear enough. I meant memory buffer not internal memory. I have an SD card installed. The memory buffer seems to be too small (only 2 shots ) before it starts writting to the SD card.
Welcome to Nikonians! What do you have the ISO set at? Do you have High ISO Noise Reduction on? What about Long Exposure Noise Reduction? All of the above can reduce the available capacity of the buffer. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
Thank you so much for all your help! Marty's suggestion about the High ISO Noise Reduction and the Long Exposure Noise Reduction did the trick. They were indeed on. Switching them off send immidiately the memory buffer indication to r99.
