It could have a buffer, and it probably won't be as big as most would

feasible, and still very useful.

Let's say the RAW data coming from the sensor is about 10Mb for each picture. 60 x 10Mb = 600Mb. The on-board CPU has to process 600Mb per second to compress that data into JPEGs. That's why even with a good buffer I'm skeptical that Casio is able to achieve that with the current technology. I don't say it will never be possible, but I don't expect to find this camera for christmas 2007...
