Why does my camera slow down on burst shooting? by Michael Andrew
What is buffer performance and what can I do to improve my camera's buffer speed? If you follow my YouTube Channel and watch my Epic Shootout's you know that I do a lot of these tests. What is causing this buffer performance bottleneck effect?
Buffer performance is how many shots your camera can fire off in a single burst. Here are the 4 buffer performance bottlenecks:
- Buffer size (memory)
- The size of your files
- Camera write speed
- Memory card write speed
