"Cards in Slots 1 and 2 settings"


Lincoln, US
          

Hi Folks,

I have two 8G SDHC cards installed, one in slot 1 and the other in slot 2. I have the camera set to use the card in slot 2 as overflow. In my LED display, I see two icons one for slot 1 and one for slot 2, except it does not have a number 2 on it as does the one in slot one, has a number 1 on it.

Both are formatted by using format cards in the menu.

Also in my LED it shows the image count when just formatted to be 223 RAW images. Should it show 446 or the total for both cards?

Hope this makes sense.

Jim

Hello Jim,

That is normal for the slot 1 to show as 1 since that slot is for the main card (page 30). I have a 4 gb and it shows 275 when on JPEG and once filled it would overflow to card 2.

John,

Thanks, just seems strange that there would not be a number 2 showing on the slot 2 card icon, nor a total of the images left for the two of them.

You'd think that if you had two card slots and one is identified as #1 then the other must be #2 As you make shots the number showing on the LED drops showing you the remaining available shots.

Hi Mark,

Thanks, that clears it up for me. I can see I'm going to have to buy some larger size cards.

I was also perplexed by the failure to note the card in Slot 2 so long as that in Slot 1 was being used. Am now comforted by the knowledge that this seems to be the norm as experienced by others.

Based on what I am reading in this thread, my guess is that the "2" label will not be seen until the second slot becomes the active one.

I believe that if the second card is chosen as overflow it doesn't show a 2 until the maximum shots in card 1 is reached. If card 2 is set as backup or Raw slot 1 - JPEG slot 2 then the number 1 and 2 is shown in the control panel - go to shooting menu, role played by card in slot 2.
