|Nikon have announced improvements to the top of the range D1X digital SLR.|
The improvements include an enlarged buffer capacity that will virtually eliminate ?buffer stall’, where the buffer becomes full and the camera must wait a few seconds to resume taking pictures. The increased capacity allows continuous shooting up to 21 frames in JPG or TIFF format and 14 frames in NEF format. The increased buffer capacity has, up until now, been available as a RAM upgrade to existing product, demonstrating the flexibility of digital. However, this did mean that the photographer had to send his camera into Nikon service depots in order to take advantage of the upgrade.
