(there is a post here that has a similar question to mine but I didn't want to hi-jack their post.)

On my D700 I use 4G Extreme IV (UDMA) cards and when I install a freshly reformatted card the D700 tells me I have approximately 155 shots. However, when I fill up the card and import it to LR I consistently get over 230 images on the card. I shoot RAW, 14-bit, lossless, compressed.

Is there some setting that is preventing the D700 from estimating more than the initial 155 shots?
