Hi to everybody,
I got a little problem (maybe my understanding) with the Buffer capacity display on my D700 that's showing in viewfinder and on the top LCD panel.

When I halfpress the shutter release button, accordingly with the manual, the area normally showing the remaining available shots changes to r06 showing that there's room in buffer for 6 shots.

In my camera this number (06) it's not changing, unregarding the image quality selection. If I'll start shooting in Ch mode the number will decrease, until it reaches zero. At that time I'll hear the shutter framerate suddenly decrease, since the buffer it's now emptying as soon as the camera writes to the Compact Flash. Before the rate slowing down the camera can record 15 shot, using Raw quality mode (no jpg).

My firmware: A1.04, B1.03
My CF: Lexar Professional 800x 16Gb UDMA7 (but I've tried with a 300x 8Gb with same results)
Settings: ISO 640, Manual Mode, Manual Focus, 1/8000sec shutter speed...

Active D-Lighting: Auto
Vignette control: N
High ISO NR: Norm
Long exp. NR: On

The situation it's changing if I turn off the image processing features, but I was thinking those was unrelated to the buffer size.
May someone give me some explanations?

Thank You
