"Hour glass appears in rear screen.......sometimes."

Hi, on taking some shots, the hour glass symbol appears in the rear screen and lasts for a few seconds.

Normally, the shutter fires and the image appears immediately on the screen.

So, on occasions, it looks as though the file is not being written to the camera memory quickly enough......maybe my diagnosis is off a bit.

Any ideas as to what may be going on...I shoot in JPG Fine at max resolution.

That would be my guess. When this happens, are you shooting at a high FPS rate? Then, bingo! That's likely the issue, as the buffer is filling.

If it's just happening with single shots, or not too many, then perhaps the SD Card is the issue.

I don't have a D7000 but would venture a guess that if some shots are high ISO and/or long exposure the camera may be pausing to apply some noise reduction. Might this be the case? Cheers, Peter
