 The Memory Buffer
The camera is equipped with a memory buffer for temporary storage, allowing shooting to 
continue while photographs are being saved to the memory card.
 
Up to 100 photographs 
can be taken in succession; note, however, that frame rate will drop when the buffer is full.
While photographs are being recorded to the memory card, the access lamp next to the 
memory card slot will light.
 
Depending on the number of the images in the buffer, 
recording may take from a few seconds to a few minutes.
 
Do not remove the memory card or 
remove or disconnect the power source until the access lamp has gone out.
 
If the camera is 
switched off while data remain in the buffer, the power will not turn off until all images in the 
buffer have been recorded.
 
If the battery is exhausted while images remain in the buffer, the 
shutter release will be disabled and the images transferred to the memory card.
A
Continuous Release Mode
Continuous release mode (
I) can not be used with the built-in flash; rotate the mode dial to 
j (0 19) or turn the flash off (0 42–44).
A
Buffer Size
The approximate number of images that can be stored in the 
memory buffer at current settings is shown in the viewfinder 
exposure-count display while the shutter-release button is pressed. The illustration shows 
the display when space remains in the buffer for about 21 pictures.
