Would it continue recording to the other slot?

Hi,

Just a thought. If there were two cards in the slots of an EX3 and the camera was recording onto one of them and then for some reason something went wrong with the card it was recording to, would the camera change to the other empty card in the other slot and continue recording or would it just stay with the faulty card till you switch slots manually?

Thanks.

I can confirm it will, Anthony.

For instance: with the "Media needs to be restored" message for slot A (for whatever reason), given some space exists on the card in slot B, the recording will continue.

Although you might want to note that the camera doesn't always notice if something has gone wrong.

Yes Marcus, I was surprised and disappointed to read this from another poster regarding just that.
That's another reason why I decided to by the NF and am so glad I did.

Thanks.
