| p.5 #19 · Canon next crop better be competitive! |
Direct from CameraLabs...Nikon is quoting 33 fine jpegs or 100 'normal' jpegs or 7 RAW...but is it reality? Gordon's review of the D7000 revealed it's sadly shallow buffer issue. The last line in Gordan's D7100 preview speaks to my earlier post.
I shoot mainly RAW, plus fine Jpeg sometimes, so the shallow buffer is not impressive...everything else looks really quite good tho...if you don't mind waiting about while the camera freezes so the buffer can take a dump
Memory is not expensive these days why not double/triple the flocking buffer...and really kill Canon, kick it's DX arse...makes no sense at all....it's a conspiracy I tell ya, or just plain stupid
Here's a bit of CL's preview...
'Nikon D7100 continuous shooting
The D7100 shares the same continuous shooting speed as its predecessor of 6fps, although remember it is now shifting 50% more pixels per frame. When I tested the earlier D7000 I was disappointed how quickly the buffer filled, typically after about 15-20 Large Fine JPEGs. Final production D7100 samples are not yet available, but the specifications look promising with Nikon quoting 33 fine JPEGs, 100 normal JPEGs or seven RAW files. Switch the D7100 to its 1.3x crop mode described above and not only will the speed increase to 7fps but the buffer will store 73 fine JPEGs or 12 RAW files.
That said I'm remaining sceptical until I've tested a final production D7100 as the manual for the D7000 quotes 31 Large Fine JPEGs even though I only managed about half that in practice. I should also note the D7000 has a larger buffer for RAW files due to their smaller size.'
