I have two cards in my D7000 right now. I have the two careds set up to for raw and JPEG. Is there any way of telling how many shots are left on the second card?

Also, on an unrelated topic -- is there a way to search this specific forum so I don't repost a question that has been asked and answered?

I believe that the LCD panel shows only the remaining memory on card one. The number indicates number of images, with a K meaning "greater than 1,000".

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong about that.

I believe this will work - remove your card from slot one and the card in slot two will now show the apprx. number left.

At the top right there is a block where you can enter in a subject, such as memory card slot, and prompt search. This will take you to different post regarding that subject.

Thanks for the replies -- one question leads to another. . .I have now taken each card out of the camera and used a card reader to transfer the photos to my hard drive. On the Raw card I have 21 photos and on the jpeg card I have 27. I can identify by number the six that are missing on the raw card. Can anyone tell me what might be going on? Also I set for jpeg fine which turn out to be very large files. Is that the way to go anyway?

Second question still stands, but I am going to redo this experiment. I don't think I deleted any in the camera, but I might have so we'll hold off on the missing files. (I can't see the photos when I put the card back in the camera either.) I am still interested in the fine setting for jpegs.

"Also I set for jpeg fine which turn out to be very large files. Is that the way to go anyway?"

As you change from "fine" to "basic" jpeg you also change the compression ration from 4:1 to 16:1 so "fine" offers a visually better shot than basic. You can change the size of the file in the image size section. For best quality use "optimal quality" in the JPEG Compression section. Play around with the different settings and sizes and pick the one that best suits your need at that time. Good luck.
