So I got my new D7000 and want to shoot Raw on Card 1 and jpeg on card 2. How do I set the camera?

I know I set cards for that but what about under size & quality?

If set to raw only will it shoot raw on both or jpeg to card 2?
If set to raw + jpeg will it shoot one raw and one jpeg to each card???

Thanks,

Steve

Shooting Menu > Role Played by card in Slot 2 > RAW Slot 1 - JPEG Slot 2.


If you set the camera to shoot just raw, and take out card 1, it will record the .NEF to card 2. If you set the camera to shoot JPEG, and take out card 2, it will record the JPEG to card 1.

So do I set the camera to shoot just raw?

Yes. Set the file to RAW and then you can decide what to do with slot 2:
-mirror slot 1
-additional storage
-or your request, RAW+jpeg

I set Raw + fine under quality.
then card 2 Raw + jpeg and all is well.
Setting quality to Raw only gives a raw only to both cards.

Thanks,

Steve

You may want to try raw with basic jpg since you can post process the raw anyway. For most purposes the basic jpg is good enough for 4x6 printing or web/email. I use an eyefi in slot 2 to send basic jpg files to my iPad and photo stream.

If you set the camera to raw only, it will not record a JPEG. You must choose RAW + JPEG if you want a SOOC JPEG.

So the raw will go to slot 1 and jpeg to slot 2? (this seems logical).
I'm hoping I won't get a raw & jpeg in slot 1.

If you choose RAW + JPEG and set the camera to RAW Slot 1 JPEG Slot 2, then your .NEFs will be on the card in the top slot and .JPGs on the card in the bottom slot.

If you remove the card from slot 2, both will be recorded on the card in the top slot.
