The shooting performance of the *ist DS is quite robust for an amateur
dSLR; it equaled and in some cases exceeded the responsiveness of the *ist
D. From power-on till the first image was captured measured only one second.
Shutter lag, the delay between depressing the shutter and capturing the
image, was 1/10 second when pre-focused, and 3/10 second including autofocus
time for a high-contrast subject. Shot-to-shot delay averaged about 1/2
second without flash; the internal flash recycle time extended shot-shot
delay to between 1.3 and 4.2 seconds, depending on subject distance.
Continuous Shooting mode captured nine shots in three seconds, with
subsequent shots at a rate of one every 6/10 second as the camera is
processing the contents of the buffer. It required ~7 seconds to write a
buffer full of JPEG images to SD card before being ready to capture the next
burst. This puts the *ist DS ahead of the *ist D and Canon Digital Rebel
both in its burst capture rate and the size/speed of its buffer, trailing
the Nikon D70 by only a slight margin. The above times were observed using a
fast Delkin 1GB SD memory card, 18-35mm FA lens, flash off, daylight
lighting, 3008x2008 JPEG/Fine.
