I am using a Nikon D5600, and many times i am shooting in situations where i do not have a laptop/pc handy.
I want to be able to see in camera all the photos i have taken. This needs JPEG as, all RAW photos would not fit in camera. I also want to be able to use the post processing abilities of RAW.
So, i thought the best of both worlds would be to shoot in RAW + JPEG , and delete the RAW files from camera after transferring them to phone through WIFI.
So, i basically, want to
Step 1 : shoot RAW + JPEG
Step 2 : Transfer the RAW files to my phone through wifi, so that i can later on, when i have access to my laptop, move the raw files from phone to laptop for further RAW post processing.
Step 3 : Delete the RAW files from the camera while leaving the corresponding JPEG file intact
I am having trouble with step 3. When i try to view the in camera gallery , it only shows the JPEG file, it does not show the RAW file separately. I am assuming, if i delete that, it will delete both the RAW and the JPEG file from the camera. Is there no way to view the 2 separately in camera, so that i can only delete the RAW file ? Is this camera behaviour of displaying only the JPEG file of shots taken in JPEG + RAW mode common across all nikon models ?
Is using a PC/laptop the only way to delete the raw files and leave the corresponding JPEGs intact in the camera? Is there no way to do this in-camera ?
EDIT : One common suggestion seems to be to just use another larger card. I am already using a large card. But, it already contains a lot of images from the past. So, it has space for about 150 RAW + Jpeg shots. Whereas, If i just keep the small jpeg files, then that much space is sufficient for a few thousand more images. That is my my main priority for in camera storage i.e. to have all the images in small JPEG files on one card for easy viewing. Hence, the solution of using another larger card does not apply here.
