With all the positive stuff we hear about the D7100 one complaint keeps popping and that's the camera performance in burst mode.
Well for those who own the camera or buy this camera expecting it to be a sport camera they will be disappointed as the buffer of the camera isn't too big but I tested my camera and found a very simple way to get a lot more then the rated 6 pics burst in RAW and then hit the buffer limit.

We all know about the 1.3 crop option and that it will bump the camera speed from 6 to 7 FPS and to my surprise I found another advantage to this function.
If you set camera to Fine JPEG in 1.3 crop not only I get the 7 PFS burst but I got a MUCH longer burst from 6 pics in regular RAW DX mode to 19-22 pictures, the buffer also cleared much faster.

So this camera is still not a sport animal but for those who need a longer burst then the rated 6 FPS and are willing for this occasion not to shoot in RAW you are getting quite the machine.
To be honest I don't shoot sports so I don't need all this but for those who do I hope this info will be helpful.
