I want to share with you a problem to hear your opinion before I send my Nex 7 to the repair shop.
As most of you know, Sony raw is a drag. As I take many pictures a day, I find it difficult to get a quick overview of the results in Photoshop or just Windows Picture browser. So, I shot Raw+JPEG in order to have a miniature of the picture and decide to keep it or not before they enter the editing process. Anyway, my NEX 7 has problems processing several Raw+JPEG shots in a raw. I takes 3 to 4 and gets stuck for a few seconds then you may continue shooting 3-4 more pictures until it gets jammed again...!!!!! This never happened to me with my D90...Is this normal? Is there anything I should do?
Thanks in advance for your comments!
Photoshop CS comes with Adobe Bridge, which allows you view RAW thumbnails if you have a reasonably up-to-date copy. Are you having trouble with Bridge? Photoshop Elements allows you to view RAWs as well. Not sure which you're using.
Regarding slow writes, here's a checklist.
- Card must be Class 10 or better.
- Format card in camera with Menu > Setup > Format
- If no better, try a new card, also class 10
- Format it in camera.
As you know already, RAW + JPG has slower writes than RAW, and RAW has slower writes than JPEG. If write time is more important than absolute IQ -- it can be, in action shooting when shooting in bursts -- then it may be best to shoot JPEG in those circumstances. I expect you know this already, but thought to mention it in case not.
