The number of shots remaining is based upon a worst case scenario.

That's to say the camera assumes the largest possible file size for the quality setting in use. As the card fills, the number of shots remaining becomes a more realistic number.

Being that file size is image content dependent, when starting with an empty card you can easily almost double the amount of shots remaining especially when shooting compressed files.
