What is buffer memory on a digital camera?

Category: Digital Cameras


The memory buffer on a digital camera acts as a temporarily storage area (RAM) for your photos before they are committed to the memory card. Once the shutter is released, the images are transferred. Larger RAM is often required for digital cameras that support higher burst rates and continuous shooting. Buffer memory is especially useful when shooting high action sequences.
