Anyone tried 16 GB flash cards in a Nikon D3 ?

    The D3 is a 35mm camera.
    It is equipment.35mm not equipment.35mm.film
    It is not a point and shoot
    It is not a range finder.
    SO your solution is not to post to an equipment.35mm grouip about a 35mm
    camera but do post to a point+shoot and range finder groups about an
    SLR....

    I've used the Sandisk 16 gig cards with no problems- the camera buffer
    limits the write speed to the cards, and having that much backup is great.

    I doubt the buffer limits the write speeds to the cards - the buffer
    memory must be a lot faster than the cards.

    I thought it might possibly be the interface between the buffer and the
    CF that limits write speeds to the cards, but from what I understand,
    that is not the case. It does appear to be the cards.

    In the link someone posted

    http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-9255

    there appeared to be quite a wide variation of write speeds, and
    generally the more expensive cards were faster. Generally the smaller
    cards were faster than the bigger ones.

    Can you explain why rec.photo.equipment.digital.point+shoot would be
    appropriate for questions about a Nikon D3.

    I could understand a more general question about CF cards, but
    specifically on the D3, which is a 35 mm camera. I know some 35 mm
    cameras are point and shoot, but I would not personally consider the D3
    to be such a camera.

  11. It is *not* a 35mm camera. Show me where it is so defined.

    And you're apparently being purposely obtuse: I said that "*one* of the
    following groups" would be appropriate. One of them is: r.p.e.d.slr.
    (You do agree that the D3 is an SLR, correct?)

  12. If you're going to play net cop, get it right.

    From the charter at:

    http://www.aliasimages.com/rpe35mmcharter.htm

    "rec.photo.equipment.35mm - 35mm cameras and lenses

    This group is for the discussion of all aspects of 35mm camera equipment. This
    includes 35mm SLR camera bodies and lenses, 35mm point-and-shoot cameras, 35mm
    rangefinder cameras, 35mm scale focus cameras and 35mm half-frame cameras."

    The D3 is a 35mm digital camera.

  13. Says you; I still see no evidence of that. Sure, it *looks* like a 35mm
    SLR, but then so does a Bronica SLR, which is definitely not a 35mm camera.

    You'll notice the charter says nothing at all about digital cameras.

    I thought so too.

    Why bother trying to get the charter revised? To satisfy David?

    As you will see from another post of mine, I use Solaris, which is a
    Unix operating system. By that, I mean Solaris is officially licensed by
    the Unix copyright holder (the Open Group). There are other Unix
    operating systems too - HP-UX and AIX to name a couple more. I suspect
    OSX, which runs on Macs is a Unix operating system too.

    Linux is NOT a Unix operating system, but it is a Unix-like operating
    system. It is similar to a real Unix in many ways, but nobody pays the
    Open Group for a license to call it Unix, so it can't be called Unix.

    There is a newsgroup comp.unix.shell where you will find numerous
    questions from people using Linux. People would not say "Linux is not
    Unix, so you can't ask for help in comp.unix.shell". They will accept
    that Linux is closely related to Unix, and leave it at that.

  17. Sorry, your analogy doesn't work. Linux is a flavor of Unix; everyone
    agrees on that.

    Digital cameras like the D3 are *not* flavors of 35mm cameras; as the
    person you responded to pointed out, most people take "35mm" to refer to
    35mm *film* cameras.

    I don't see what the big deal is: why not just post to r.p.e.d.slr and,
    as you say, "leave it at that"? Sounds simple enough to me. That *is*
    the appropriate newsgroup.

  18. Sorry, Wikipedia doesn't cut it. Give us a *real* reference.
    No, because it's implicit. Keep in mind that this group was created and
    the charter written way before there were digicams around.
