Re: D 7100 6 shot Raw Buffer IMO D400 still coming

Does anyone know why buffer sizes are limited at all really? In the big scheme of the cost of a camera, the size, cost, and availability of the memory with the smartphone boom are all trivial. So what is the bottleneck here? I realize they may have kept this to a certain size for this camera, but its a common thread for really all moderately priced cameras.

Its not as though they lose something by making it bigger and charging us a little more. They could just keep the buffer relatively smaller than the next model up, but increase the size of the whole line up I would think. Unless there is something from an engineering standpoint that holds them back.
