Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Using two cards, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
If I have two media cards installed, I need to tell the camera how to handle the second one.…So if I go here into my menu, in my SHOOTING MENU I have the Role played by card in Slot 2.…If I open that up, I have a few options.…I have Overflow, when one card fills up.…it simply goes to the next card and keeps writing.…This can be a really, really great feature for event shooters.…It keeps you from having to stop and swap cards.…Now you may thing well why don't I just buy a bigger card? You can do that.…That's more expensive.…It also means that if that bigger card fails, you lose more images.…
This allows you to work with smaller cards, so that you don't have all of your…eggs in one basket and you still don't have to be interrupted.…Say, you are shooting a sporting event or a performance of some kind.…you don't have to be interrupted to swap cards.…You can just let it Overflow.…Backup writes the same image to both cards.…So I automatically have a Backup.…This can be good both for safety or if I need to deliver images to someone…
