While I haven't (yet) taken a bunch of pictures without a card in the camera, I will admit to having taken a bunch of pictures on film where the film wasn't threaded correctly and not being advanced with each throw of the advance lever....

This should be an option in firmware. It's crazy that there is an option to prevent the shutter going off if the flash isn't ready, yet no option to prevent it if there is no card in the camera. I too have been burnt by this, although I did realise after just a few shots.

My Kx says there is no card inserted on the LCD. I didn't turn on any setting to get it to say that. The dashes on the counter should be a dead giveaway.

We are not so different, then, you and I.

If it's any help, I always have this little routine of powering up the camera and firing a wee burst of shots and checking via the screen to see all is well.

I do this every time I power up. It only takes a few seconds to do, but shows up any strange exposure settings left over from the last use, a card missing or failures etc.

It's a bit like WW1 & WW2 Pilots testing their guns, I don't want to miss a shot either.
