Image Count

Anyone know about the image count eg image left to shoot.
I'm using a 32gb card it reads 592 shooting raw+, but as I shoot the count goes down then as the buffer writes I'll get some images back . I've just done a test the total images I can shoot is actually 1187dng (2374 including JPEG ) almost double of the reading!
Any Ideas peeps?

The actual filesize depends on the shooting conditions, as DNGs are losslessly compressed and JPEGs are compressed with a lossy algorithm. This means that both filetypes will be smaller if there are large areas consisting of the same color, i.e. lots of shadows or lots of blown highlights. Moon photos, for instance, are often less than 1Mb.
