During the brief time my Z6 was in for warranty work, I had a loaner Z6 on consignment that generated file sizes of 41 to 42MB. I double checked the EXIF data to make sure it wasn't a Z7. Why would the NEF files be so large?
That's true once the files are copied from card to PC, but for a large number of files, the transfer time has been a factor. In fact, one of the reasons I sold the Z7 was because I didn't want (or need) large files!Your PC will probably not notice the small difference in file size.
To a lesser degree, this remains a factor today.I do remember in those days that the amount of time required to open a large file was an issue, especially when opening many files in a single day
Yes! Every now and then, I fill a card while action is occurring and miss a shot. Then, it takes me a moment to realize that the camera hasn't malfunctioned and that I need to swap cards.an all-day excursion where I've done a lot of shooting that would fill up one or more SD cards
Seems like a reasonable compromise to me also.I got with lossless compression. My MacBook thanks me.
