Re: D800/600: Why not dump buffer into the TWO cards simultaneously?

I think you've got a good idea... in theory.

But I just don't think it'll work.

Aside from the technical stuff, which card to write which photo to, etc..

Wouldn't all of this still be limited by the camera's processor and write speeds?

Think of a computer writing to an external HDD.

Yes you can copy files to two separate HDD at once, but as soon as you start that second transfer, the overall speed slows down  due to the limitations of the system doing the actual writing.
