Camera Use BasicsBufferThe buffer is an internal memory that determines how many images can be taken in a burstImages are written into the buffer and out to the card simultaneously rather than waiting for the buffer to fill before writing to the memory cardOnce the buffer is full, shooting can only take place when there is space for at least one image in the bufferUsually quoted as the number of Large JPEG files that can be captured in a sequence1.2 buffer.swf34Canon Training Network. 33.
