Does the Canon have a lot more megapixels than the Nikons?

Is the recording quality for the cameras in question the same? If shooting raw, are they all at maximum recording quality? And the same for Jpeg if you use it?

I suspect that it isnt about the size of the card but the recording setting of the individual camera and also the amount of card space that the cameras set up has used. As an educated guess I would imagine a more sophisticated camera would be card "greedy" in comparison to a simple one.....just a thought!

What cameras, specifically, are we talking about?
Some older cameras will only recognise cards up to a predetermined capacity.

I think my Canon 6d lcd top plate display only has 3 digits. So 999 is Max it can display.

Out of interest I checked my Canon 5D4 and it has four digits so a maximium of 9999. I use Raw so even with both 32GB cards in place, it goes up to 694. If I set Raw off and JPEG to medium quality it does read 9436 but for JPEG Low Quality it reads 9999.
