When using RAW, write times seem extremely slow. You can take two shots in succession but then wait 10 sec to take another. Yet it will take several shots in burst mode - I think 5 or 6. But then you have to wait about 20-25 sec to take another shot. What was your impression?

You're right I neglected to mention the slow write times. I had similar problems, and found the camera near-unusable when shooting RAW. It's just too slow for me.

There is a marked difference in speeds between different card brands and sizes. You need to test faster cards and perhaps to have some patience. These compacts are not dSLRs with big buffers to hide the slow write speeds.

No doubt, Kim, but it's certainly something that deserves mentioning. Slow is slow, no matter the form factor.
