DSLR is a nice toy

...but it produces *huge* pictures (like 12MB each) in RAW+JPEG mode. I'm using CF to PCMCIA... and well, that sucks. Interrupt latency (or what is that?) is so high that keystrokes are lost in X (and I'm using PS/2 keyboard). Sometimes key _release_ is lost and.. that's bad.

Is there really no way to use PCMCIA without making system completely unusable? (Hmm, can I just enable DMA on CF disk?). Machine is unusable for 30 minutes now...
