Default cp5000 write speed

I currently use a Viking 512 CF card in my cp5000. In Fine resolution, it takes 10-12 seconds to write and be ready for another shot.

In Raw, it takes 22-24 seconds.

Is this normal? Will another card be faster?

I shoot underwater and miss a lot of opportunities waiting on the camera.

Any suggestions?

Does that camera come with a small sized CF card? How fast does it write with other cards? What size is the buffer on the camera? Is the camera able to buffer a few shots while the camera is writing to the card?

Hi
I'm using a SanDisk 128MB card in my CP5000 and have about 1-2 seconds timelap when writing in Fine resolution.
Can't say when it comes to Raw, as I never tried it.
(Someone told me that the colour depht wasn't wide enought)
But it should be equivalent to the write speed for Fine resolution.

Two of main dealers here in Sweden recommend Sandisk cards.
Or as they say, "CP5000 can be a little sensitive which cards is used" :?

Lars, thanks for your post.

I just tried the 32mb Sandisk that came with the camera.

Same slow write times! It's a mystery.
