I am new to the D7000 and to using a camera with two memory slots. If I want to use the second slot as overflow, when the slot 1 card is full can I remove it, move the slot 2 card to slot 1, put a fresh card in slot 2 and have an uninterrupted series of photos recorded on the slot 1 (formerly slot 2) card. Hope this is clear - its really a simple question. Thanks
The advantage would be if card 1 rolls over to card 2 and you stop shooting for the day, you could switch card 1 out, refresh, and be ready to go with two almost empty cards for the next day. I'm using 16 GB cards, so it's unlikely I will fill two of them in one day's shooting. That is a lot of shooting for me - 1000 NEFS.
Yes- it will work fine the way you describe. When you're in overflow mode, when slot 1 is full, it starts filling slot 2. if you pull the card out of slot 1, it will continue to use slot 2 until a card with room appears in slot 1. Move the cards if you prefer and all is well. I do this in sports - if I've gone into overflow by halftime, I'll rotate cards so that I have a numbered sequence on my cards - makes it easier for me in my PP workflow.
