Hi Folks:

I've been lurking on Nikonians for a while now, and it's about time I joined this community. I'm the happy owner of a new D100 and discovered the other day that I had never changed the image quality setting for NEF images from compressed RAW to RAW (the long wait after 3 exposures clued me into this mistake). I was surprised that when I did change this to uncompressed, that the remaining exposure count remained the same. With an empty 512MB flash card it registers 51 exposures when I set the image quality to RAW regardless of whether compression is set or not.

I've read in earlier threads that the remaining image count is conservative, but this seems downright pessimistic! Have any of you observed this? Compressed NEFs, if they mean more exposures on my flash card would be nice, esp. when I'm not taking rapid fire pictures.

Cheers,

-Brad.
