    I've been using the two slots 1 for raw and 2 for jpegs. I seem to reach a point where I lose track of the exposures and whats left on which card.
    Given two equal sized cards the card recording raw will fill first and the camera will stop, after replacing the card the remaining shots on the jpeg card are
    displayed. Will the camera stop when the jpeg card is filled? I've never reached that point, I generally will replace that card before it fills and then I've got a new number, which I assume is the shots remaining on the raw card. Is there a way to tell how many exposures are on a particular card at a given time? How do use the two slot (raw-jpeg) setup?
    thank you...jb
  2. Page 71 of the manual speaks to this, and says that the shutter release will stop working when either card is full. The top LCD and viewfinder shoudl show remaining images on the card with the least capacity remaining, when shooting in RAW Card 1 / JPEG Card 2.
