"D7000: Deleting photos when SD cards in Backup mode"


AU
          

I've recently bought a D7000 and importing the images into Lightroom is driving me crazy.

I have the SD cards set to Backup mode. During my normal shooting I shoot a number of images, triage the ones I may want and delete the ones I definitely don't want. At the end of the day, I upload to Lightroom.
The problem is that I have two copies of the photos I want plus all the photos I deleted.

OK, I'm guessing that this is related to having the SD cards in Backup mode. However, I'm surprised that deleting an image does not delete the image on both cards. I've tried reformatting the cards; I've tried Delete Selected vs locking the images I want and using Delete All. Everything leads to the same result in Lightroom.

This is the first camera I've used with two flash cards. Has anyone seen this problem before? Is it a Nikon problem or is there an issue with Lightroom?

One of the reasons for having a backup, I think, is to ensure that the photo you delete in the field or at home today is the photo you can still review and save tomorrow. Lightroom isn't designed to query camera hardware to determine the number of card slots and sort out which one is a backup. The camera and Lightroom are working as designed.

I recommend using a card reader. It's faster - much faster - than any camera/computer connection, and there won't be any image duplication.

Do you have a suggestion on a good card reader for cards used in the D7000? I am currently forced to use the USB connection from the camera directly.

I bought the Promaster Digital card reader which works splendidly. It has 4 different slots for different card sizes.

Why not just remove the backup card from the camera's body just before doing the lightroom synch?

I get good results with the Quantaray digital 50-in-1 card reader; has 5 slots and about $22 +-.

Make sure the reader you purchase is SDXC rated, even though you may not be using SDXC cards now, you may decide to use one or two in the future?

SanDisk and Lexar both make great SD/CF card readers which provide very fast transfer rates for SanDisk, Lexar, Transcend, Hoodman and Accumem cards.

Thanks to everyone for the advice.

I had thought about backup SD as protecting against media failure, but clearly deleting the wrong image is a major concern as well.

Thanks the insight.

I am new this winter to Lightroom 3 along with getting my D7000. With all of the flexibility of two SD card slots and learning to setup and use LR3, it took me a few weeks to settle into a system that works for me. I started out shooting in RAW + Fine and using the second slot as backup. That gave me WAY TOO MANY copies of each image on my desktop hard drive when I downloaded from the camera using USB. I felt a bit overwhelmed and needed to do something about this.

So I tried other options and finally got to a system that gives me the archive of all my RAW images on my desktop. I now save RAW on card 1 and Fine JPG on card 2. Then I put the RAW card in my desktop reader and import into LR3 using the convert to DNG option. I reformat card 1 in the camera for re-use. The second card stays in the camera and the JPG's are left there unless I have an image I want to give to someone immediately after shooting. The use of my hard drive space is greatly reduced and I don't have to sort through so many identical images. I also still archive to my external hard drive.

I just bought one of the little SanDisk MicroMate readers from Amazon for $14.95. It's a great unit, and is small enough to carry with you when traveling. It's only a little larger than the SD card itself, and has a built in USB plug with a cover. Fast and reliable.
