Re: SONY can do it!!

Buffer performance and card performance are two different things.

I can currently shoot JPEGs at 8 FPS until my card is filled. But that's because I have a fast card.

I think what they've done affects the processing to the buffer. So even if you have a slow card, the buffer can take care of it for 25 raw files (or 130 JPEGs).

if the A77 can increase the buffer via firmware update... add the ability to full manual controls at 12 FPS.... it will be awesome

What's interesting is that those numbers are not much different than what DPReview was able to achieve during their review a few years back using a fast memory card.

Canon's official specs at the time were 126 frames in JPEG, 15 frames in RAW. But DPReview was able to achieve over 320 frames in JPEG, 25 frames in RAW. So that would mean only a 1 RAW file improvement but a deficiency of almost 200 JPEGs if you compare Canon's new spec to DPReview's numbers.

So the question comes down to:

  • Was Canon being conservative in their numbers in the past and today's firmware improvement isn't really so great (just more of an accurate depiction of what it could do the whole time)?


  • Would we see an even greater improvement today with the same memory card that DPReview used in their review than they did a few years back?
