I currently have a D3100 and shot Raw + JPEG. I import into Aperture with JPEG as the master. I mostly edit the JPEG but once in awhile I have a great shot that I need to work on using the RAW file. My challenge is that Aperture is, of course, struggling to keep up with the rapidly increasing library size. What I would like to do is import the JPEG and then save the RAW file to an archive or HD. So a few questions:
1) is it possible to save Raw files just to a hard drive?
2) is it possible to separate the JPEG and Raw files when saved to a SD card in a D3100?
I am thinking about upgrading to the D7000 (for many reasons) where I can save the jpeg to one card and the raw to the other card. I assume that would make it easier to archive / save the raw files without importing to Aperture.
Appreciate any insights.
