So, if I shoot a burst until the buffer's full, it will take about 3 seconds to clear the buffer before I can shoot again, correct?
Do you set your FPS for Continuous Low to 3 FPS or something to help?
No, it will shoot prior to the 3 seconds being up. It takes 3 seconds from the time that the camera first quits shooting until the buffer is completely clear. If you put the camera on Continuous High, you'll hit the buffer limit and then the camera will pause briefly, and start shooting at about an average of 2.5 FPS in 14-bit RAW. It will continue doing that essentially forever.
I set my CL to 3 FPS and stay there are majority of the time. Even with my D300, which didn't have the buffer limits of the D7100, that was usually what I stuck with.
