Re: Slow writing


Jon is right - the E600 will have 'dark noise subtraction' on by default for exposures I think that are over 5 seconds. This is not a bad thing by the way, as dark noise subtraction is a way of eliminating possibly significant amounts of noise from long exposure images. I always use it for my long exposure shots. It's nothing to do with the camera writing to the CF card, and it's not a fault either

'NR' being turned on is something different; this is a camera function that when enabled, removes noise from images taken at all lengths of exposure and usually does a good job of removing noise as a result of high ISO.

Hope that helps.
