Hello Everyone,

This is my first post and I writing on behalf of my buddy who's on a safari vacation in Africa.

Before his trip he purchased a 5200 and a couple of SanDisk cards. He found that the camera/cards never give a warning that the card is full and will overwrite existing images. Luckily his prized images of gorillas were backed-up before the camera overwrote those.

Anyway has anyone seen this behavior before? I don't know if it's on more than one card. Is there a setting on the camera that he missed? He mentioned he did format both cards in camera before use.

I did warn him that he should test the camera before he left for his trip but the camera just became available the day before he left.

Thanks for your help!

John V.
