Canon D20 Questions
Will I be able to use the CF cards on both D10 and D20? I know one is 6.3mp the other is 8some, are they interchangeable with images on them? I know from experience that I cannot see the images shot on the D10 on the G2 less megapixels but Im afraid of shooting to find out. Has anyone done that? Will there be a folder for the 4 mp 6 mp and 8mp if i decide to shoot on all three with one CF card.... Just curious...also anyone find any glitches on the D20 that are bothersome?

Re: Canon D20 Questions
If I understand you correctly, you want to take some pics with the 20D, then take the CF card out, put it in a 10D and continue to take pics? You can do that. Not sure why you'd want to do it, but it will work.

Thanks....don't really want to do that but I've been in a situation when I wanted to shoot a CF card on my G2 and find out that I had some images on it from the D10 I wasn't sure if I would lose those images on the card. Using my D10 as a back now and just curious. I know Canon doesnt like to lose money thus the new battery grips with each new camera but I needed to know if the cards/images were backward compatible so to speak.... Thanks again

Re: Canon D20 Questions
If I recall, it may mess up the file numbering scheme. But that would be the only problem, and a fairly minor one. But just try it. Put the card in 20D and Format. Then shoot 10 shots. Then take out and put in the 10D. Shoot 10 shots. Then look at the card and see what you get. The worst that can happen is that you'd just put in back in the 20D and reformat.

Re: Canon D20 Questions
It should record images from both cameras. I've even written edited files from my PC back to a card and then taken more shots on it. You probably won't be able to view the images shot on the other camera but there's no reason why the card would be corrupted or won't write the shots. Like the others said, avoid it if you can. Cards are so cheap these days it's easier to carry a few than get into file numbering issues and not being able to view shots taken on another camera.

Re: Canon D20 Questions
As a 10D and 20D owner, I can confirm what the others have said about the interchangability. It will screw with the numbering somewhat, but I have been in a situation where I needed a few more shots from the 20D and the only card handy was in the 10D, so I pulled it out and stuck it in the 20D.

Good luck

I haven't had too much trouble with that,...but I have had to reformat the cards when I tried it between the 5D and 1DMk2 bodies to insure that I won't have screwed up files.. I just reformat the card every time I insert it into my camera..and don't swap cards between bodies, even if they are the same kind..

Losing images sucks, and learning that once is too many times.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
