Re: Sigma SD1 - 7-fps not bad

A 7 frame buffer is not good. That's what the SD14 has and I run into it all the time--really frustrating. Sigma is still making compromises with the SD1, the small buffer is one example as is the very slow file write time, again almost as long as the SD14.

this has always been the issue - the SD14 takes longer to write a 4.6Mp X3F than an ancient SD9 takes to write a 3.3Mp one same for the DP series (in otherwords, there's no card write speed improvement since 2003) - If the SD1 takes as long to write a 15Mp X3F then it's actually gained write speed, an unbelievably fast card interface would be needed to pot colossal SD1 X3Fs at the same speed as even something like a 1DS MK3 or D3X RAW and I doubt Sigma have the technology .

How fast is the Pentax 645D - that's the kind of file and buffer it needs to be compared to
