Moving Card from Camera to Camera

I have a shoot tomorrow. I'm using a rented HM 700 and my HM 100 that I just reeived yesterday. Can I take a card already formatted on the 100 and use it on the 700?

Trying to avoid buying another 16Gb card.

The formatting won't be an issue but I wouldn't recommend it if you already have HM100 clips on that card. I've done this before and because the databases don't match the other camera will ask you to repair the files... which don't actually need repairing.

It's best just to format the card in the camera it is to be used with.

Got it. Thanks Tim. BTW, I'm ordering your Shooters Guide DVD as we speak.

Cheers, David
