GRR THE BUFFER ALMOST RUINED A SHOOT I DID WITH A MODEL!!!

Blame the equipment when it could be "operator error"?

All equipment has limitations. We can whine about our equipment "holding us back" and "ruining a shoot", or learn those limitations and work around them.

Another example: when I use flash, I have to factor in that recycle time isn't instantaneous, so I have to take that into account. It isn't the fault of the flash if I press the shutter button too soon ... it's the "guy in the mirror".

How is it operation level?

i am working with a experience model who creates different poses between each frame. i take maybe 1 frame per second at best if not slower and the camera simply cant even keep up with this. Also if i want to show the model the preview of the pic i have to wait until the camera clears the buffer and allows me to view the image.

For sport you can simply forget about using this camera for such a thing
