I tend to burst on grand exits/entrances where I want to make sure I get a shot in focus with the subject with a good expression. It might just be 2-3 shots per person but when you have a bridal party of 5-6 pairs, the buffer can fill up before you know it when they're coming in at a quick pace, and then lock up right as the B&G walk out.

In general usage, thought it's not really an issue.


Yeah, that's usually the once in a while occasion that I hit the buffer.

Problem with SD is, it's so cheap...half the price.


yes, shooting RAW on SD cards for the best value/write speed

I shoot with both types of cards in the camera permanently and write RAW to both cards. The SD card is the 95mb/s version, (even though I realise that at the moment it is not being used to anywhere near that speed in the camera).

Have never had a slowdown during a wedding.

I also shoot basketball with the camera and generally shoot at the fps rate the camera will allow. More often than not I'm only shooting in bursts of 5-7 images, sometimes a few quick singles before that burst and sometimes one or two after the main burst. The camera hasn't slowed the frame rate, but the 'working' light is lit for maybe 5 seconds or so after a run of action like that. So, I can still keep shooting. Can't see that sort of thing coming up too often at a wedding. That said, the example of repeated smaller burst building up in the buffer over time, like during a grand entrance/exit, does seem more likely to occur. But whether it would cause the camera speed to slow down is another question.
