ok, i just got my D800 in a rush due to my D700 failing and the insurance paid out, i added the rest onto the price and got the D800.
great you may think, until i got home put a sandisk 16gig card in and realised that in raw it would only hold 1 shot? if i turn the quality down to basic and small the camera will shoot 698 shots.
up till now I've always shot in raw on the D700 and i shoot about 1500 to 2000 shots at a shoot. (motorcycle racing)
is 1 shot RAW = to near on 16 gig? if so i believe in my ignorants i have rushed and bought the wrong tool for my trade.
or have i got something drastically wrong,
if so i think i may box it back up and take it back. :-(
thanks for any help on this, what i really would like to know is if shooting on the lowest setting is going to be as good or = to the D700 in Raw full size?
excuse me if I'm totally stupid.
