Sounds like you taking bursts of pictures and the camera is "busy" as it clears its buffer and writes the files to the memory card.

Probably either the buffer is full and it has to make space writing to the card or the flash needs recharging or cooling down.

yeah with a slow card its even worse... specially with RAW

I'm not sure about the XTI, but on my T1i/500D I could take 9 burst shots in RAW then it starts to say busy and allows me to take 1 photo at a time afterwards unless I paused for a few seconds

but there is no problem if you are shooting in JPEG

if is theflash, the only way to really fix it is to get an external flash. That way it doesnt drain your camera battery....if its flash, this is why it says busy.

ahh then yes, I agree...it must be the pop up flash, not catching up in recycle time.

I have an Xti as well. If you use the pop up flash even minimally you will get the annoying busy. I think it must get warm quickly. I rectified the issue by purchasing an external flash which is far superior to the pop up.

I am not completely sure that shooting in auto with a popup flash would be considered normal.

Not sure if Auto is normal for a person with Photography in their title.
