You can configure settings for when images with different sizes have been recorded on the CFexpress card at the same time, or specify how to transfer images shot in the RAW+JPEG or RAW+HEIF format...

Page 68

If images are specified to be recorded as RAW on one CFexpress card and JPEG or HEIF on another card, determine the image to be transferred by using the [RAW +JPEG transfer] or [RAW+HEIF transfer] setting... Also use this setting when RAW +JPEG or RAW+HEIF images are simultaneously recorded on a single card... The captured images are also stored on the card... If images of the same size are simultaneously recorded on two cards, the images recorded on the card that is preferentially specified in [ Record/play] or [ Play] under [ : Record func+card/folder sel... ] will be transferred...
