G15 buffer depth

(1/1)

pwp:
Looking to pick up a good P&S with RAW capability and a bright lens...the G15 is ticking a lot of boxes. There is also the attraction of staying in the same Canon ecosystem. One piece of information I have not been able to find in any review or spec list is the buffer depth when shooting RAW. And how quickly does that buffer clear?

if you go to mid-page-ish, there's a section on it.  it's not entirely clear, they say it can shoot 1.1 fps RAW+JPG until the card is full, but the shooting speed depends on zoom length and "other settings", which is pretty vague.  in high speed mode, they say for every 10 shots it takes 5 seconds for the buffer to clear.

Thanks, yes I saw the DP Review piece...it's not that clear is it? Though that suggests the G15 has reasonable processing power for a P&S.
I'm not expecting the same speed as my 1D MkIV! Just enough to be useful.
