Answers :

Slow down after taking 6 RAW files ...
A RAW file is Approx. 12.4MB.
The memory usage is approx. 74,4 MB
\015\012The internal memory (Buffer) has a size for up to 75 JPEG compressed images.
\015\012Which size has the smallest jpg?
\015\012JPEG/Small: Approx. 1.2MB (1,936 x 1,288)
\015\012The Buffer is approx. 80 MB.
\015\012The data are calculated under Canons laboratory conditions.
The maximum Burst (the 17 shoots) means that the camera is writing to the card and the buffer is full. Than the cam will stopping taking pictures.
\015\012Which kind of Card do you use?
Check the spec for the card (write speed) and maybe buy a faster card.

I have had an Pentax Optio S10 auto focus camera for about 3 years and it hasn't missed a beat. But now it will not take photos in flash mode. I have tried the usual settings as per the manual, and noticed a previous posting of the same issue. The response was to recharge the battery, which currently I am doing. The indicator on the camera's LCD however shows the battery to be almost fully charged though. Would this be the same issue? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Graham
