SD/CF Card ID
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:13:23 PM »
It might be nice to know with which SD/CF card I am currently shooting, without having to A) Turn off the camera and B) take the card out to look at the label. What about displaying this somewhere on the GUI? I have my cards numbered N001, N002, etc. Could we see this somewhere in the GUI, perhaps with a "card" icon?

There could be a very small (read-only?) text file on each card which ML could read to get the "N001" (or whatever) label.

Good idea?

With the new flexinfo system, you can display the card label, the card maker and the card model info.

Pelican: thank you for your reply. I wish I understood what you meant! Is this a menu item in ML or were you being cryptic? Is this a planned future item ("the new flexinfo system") or...what?

In any case, thank you for your quick response!
