I just got this fantastic camera and was using it yesterday on a wedding for the first time.
I encountered some situation that I cant find the answer in the manual book.
If anyone can help me with this, I'll be really appreciate it.
1.Using Kingston 16GB card, only can have about 200 images on "L" size ?
2.When I change the filesize from L to M1, M2, etc, the remaining shot stays the same, while my understanding is that smaller filesize = more shots, and vice versa.
Is there anything I did wrong ?

Thanks.

Can't really offer definitive advice but can tell you something ain't right. My large jpg pics average 15mb each. You shooting l + raw? Formatted your card? Tried a different card?

You are approaching the limit of 9999 images per folder for the present folder.
As KennyG says reset things by creating a new folder - Page 60 in the manual.

Dont really understand it.

When I got the camera, it has 12,6xx clicks on it, so my understaning the 9999 limit is already passed, and now 12,6xx - 9999 = 2600 click on the second/new folder, am I right ? which means, still have 7400 clicks to go before the next folder.
(again, new to 1D world, so might missed some stuff).

Thanks.

If you put an unformatted card in with previously numbered images then it can pick up that numbering scheme. Do a search here, there is a way to fix it and get back to the right number.

200 shots on a 1ds2 in large sounds very odd in L size

my 5d2 in full 21mp raw can get 600 images or so on a 16gb card. depending on iso of course

Problem solved Guys...
You Guys are right, It was nearing the end of 9999th images.
And it is recommended to use the M-reset (from "file numbering" option), so it will continuously shooting without interuption, even when its on the 9999th images because the camera will automatically make a new folder and you can keep shooting without interuption.
While if you dont use the M-Reset option, the camera will stop taking pics when it hits 9999 and ask you to make the new folder before it will be able to continue shooting...
Pheewww....

note:
I know some of 1DsmkII user, specially those who used this camera since the early days probably already know this.
So, let this information to be used by those people who are new to this camera.

Thanks again everyone.
