"Jump from one card to the other in Preview?"

Howdy, y'all

The D7100 is my first camera with two memory card slots, so forgive me if I'm missing something simple. If I'm somewhere in the previews, is there a straightforward way for me to jump to the beginning of the current card, or to the end of the other card?


My actual usecase is this: I have a portable printer (the Polaroid Pogo). I'm trying to print only specific images to it wirelessly, and the only way I can think of is to use my smartphone as an intermediary.

So I have my normal (class 10) SD card in slot 1, and I have an EyeFi class 6 card in slot 2. I have the camera set to write RAW images to slot 1 and JPEGs to slot 2. This is because (1) I only have one EyeFi card, so if it fills up, I can no longer print, and (2) I need RAW files for my normal processing workflow.

So I have the EyeFi set up to only transmit images to my phone when I mark an image as Protected. My phone, acting as a WiFi hotspot, receives those specific images, and lets me do any cropping or whatever and then send the image to the printer via Bluetooth.


This all works pretty well, except that after I take an image, Preview shows me the NEF copy, and I have no easy way to jump to the JPEG copy of that image. If I could jump to the end of card2, or jump to the beginning of card1 and then go back one, this would be easy.

The workaround I've been using so far is to just eject card1, at which point the camera jumps to the end of card2 and I can mark that image as Protected. This is pretty risky, though, because if I eject the card while the camera is writing, I could corrupt the entire filesystem and lose all of those images. That's a big risk that I'd really rather not take.

Why not just select the #2 slot for preview?

In preview mode press the Bracket button while pressing the UP multi-selector to choose which slot you are viewing.

Thank You for that Stan. I did not know that either.

These darned cameras are getting so filled with features that no one knows them all, probably no one at Nikon does either. That is one reason I do not suggest upgrading until there is a real reason to, since few people really get to know their camera before it is replaced with one with even thicker manual.
I still learn about new features or functions every week on my D7000, despite reading the manual cover to cover before using it. When I got the D800, I left the manual in its plastic wrapping and headed off on a trip, and never did read it. I am sure there are features that might be useful but if I have not thought of it or missed it, I probably did not need it in the first place;>)
Contrary to popular opinion, I like the Nikon manuals, lots of areas covered in a compact form. If someone reads it, they will know a great deal about their camera and its use.

In lieu of Stan, it's on page 186 of the D7100 manual (pg 164 of D7000).

I only have a D7000 not aD7100, but the instruction appears the same. So unless I'm missing something (or they changed the way the D7100 functions), selecting the card slot in that manner puts you at the first image of that folder, and the choice is not sticky.

But to accomplish the OP's goal, you use the bracket button with the up arrow of the Multi-selector and re-choose slot 1 which dumps you to the first image of the NEF folder, then just back up one to get to the last image of slot 2 JPEG folder.
