Question about Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

D300 control panel

Just out of the box, battery charged and SanDisk Extreme III 4 gb card formatted. The control panel continues to display [1.0[k which I understand to be 1000 shots available when the ON/OFF switch is turned OFF. Is this a malfunction? What can I do? Or is it normal?

    What a relief! On page 46 (Camera Off Display) which I just found in the manual, it says that some cards allow for this info being off when camera is off; otherwise, like you said, it's normal for it to be displayed when off. Thanks for getting me over the expensive-new-equipment panic! Carolena

No, it is not a malfunction, and it is perfectly normal. It is just a heads-up-display of how many pictures you have left. THere might be a way to turn it off, so consult the user manual, or go to this link.

Cannon Powershot A540 SanDisk SDHC 4 gb I insert the card and receive a memory card error. Can't format


Hi,

A 4 gb memory card is beyond the capacity of your Cannon A540. It is too large. I would stick with a 1 gb card in that camera.
