I checked the manual (expecially the charts at page 423 for FX pictures and page 424 for DX pictures) and try to get the buffer to work properly for my purpouse!
Anyway there's still some difference between the figures on the charts and what I can read on my display. Turning off all the "image processing" features I still get 16 frames in the buffer using RAW 14 bit, compressed lossles (that is the format I use to shoot), whereas the manual states 20.
I'd like to know if each individual cameras can show different figures for buffer size, or if is mine to be somehow "defective"... May you be so kind to check what readings for buffer capacity are coming from your camera?
Thank you very much for your first reply, and to help me in understanding this feature of my D700!
