buffer fills faster than it can when it is empty? this is counterintitive. why would that be so?.
re point 6:
"result is about 11-12 frames" (before crawl): so if 12 frames, at 6 fps, that is about two seconds of continuous shooting before hitting the crawl. Right?
But compare point 2: 10 frames written from buffer to card in about 8 seconds -- but the camera is writing to the buffer at the same time, so this 10 seconds does not mean much more than how long it takes to empty the buffer when not writing to the buffer (i./e, when not shooting). Right?
"fill rate which is 2 seconds at 6 fps". Do you mean two seconds per frame?
