Could others that have a D200 check their buffer capacity at a few different settings? Press the shuter button half way and look at the number that is where the "shots remaining" should be.

Check RAW with no compression turned on. (Mine shows 21 manual says 22)

Check JPG Fine Large with no compression on. (Mine shows 25, manual says 37)

I have a 4GB Extreme III Sandisk CF card so I know it has nothing to do with card speed.

These figures are on page 196 of the D200 manual.

Also, does your number of shots change if you turn on RAW compression? Mine doesn't but I would think it should. It does on my D100.

Thanks for you help,
BIll Young
