"RE: D4 RAW Buffer "

A couple of days ago, I was set up with my tripod upstream from a young moose getting ready to cross a stream. Normally, I don't blast through something like this, but prefer to time short bursts of three or four shots on each forward step, then pause during the intermediate parts of the steps. I like to get the forward splash of the shin as they walk through the water. This time, I wanted to test the D4, so I held the shutter button down. Shooting in 14 bit RAW, (Aperture priority, VR off) the D4 shot around 80 images before I heard the first soounds of it bogging down. I paused just a bit and started again. The camera seemed to be very quick at dumping the files to a 36 gig XQD card and I was able to get another 56 shots before he stepped out of the creek. There were a couple of drags during the last 56 shots, but nothing like my old D300. I probably won't do that again, but it is nice to know I have access to a lot of shots during a burst if I ever need them.

Also, I have Lightroom set to number my photos with the year, month, day, minute, and second. Each shot in a second gets a -1, -2, -3, and so forth appended to the end. There was at least one grouping of shots in the burst that numbered all the way up to -10, indicating it did indeed take ten images within the single second. The shots were taken with 9 point focus and continuous focus.

Hope this helps,
