My D800 is new and haven't got around yet to purchasing new memory card so temporarily using one of my old CF cards. Doing so I noticed something odd (at least to me). I shoot in Lossless compressed 14 bit. The file sizes are around 47MB. For sake of argument lets say they are 50MB. since there are 1000 MB in a GB the math says the card should hold 20 photos per GB. The card in question is an 8 GB card so theoretically it should hold 160 50 Mb
files.

Why then does the camera show that when newly formatted it will hold only 100 photos?
