I've never used a professional-grade camera, but the excessive time between
shots for .TIFF on my Nikon 950 made me think it would be impractical. But now
I see that SLRs can to burst mode of 4-5 frames/sec for quite a few seconds ....
So I'd guess there's some serious memory buffering going on there...

Oh, I dunno, it's not a bad format, it is not nasty, many printers like it
and it even admits compression of a non lossy kind. If you do send in TIFF
format, see my last post on this...
