Compact Flash speed?
Hi All. I have a Nikon 8700 and it was taking 15- 16 seconds to generate a photo in 'Hi' resolution (23.5MB Tiff) mode using the card the camera came with (a 4X Lexar 256MB).
I just purchased a 1 Gig SanDisk Ultra II card hoping that it would improve a poor situation. Sadly it hasn't...it now takes 14 - 15 seconds...I've saved all of 1 second!
Is anyone familiar with this camera and if you are - is this normal performance? Is there any other way I can decrease the time necessary to capture a high res photo?
As it stands, it's almost impossible for me to take an effective VR in crowded areas using anything over medium quality.
Hope you can help
