One of the main selling points was FPS but i cannot get my 7d to burst pictures. The only way is in CA setting and it doesnt even work all the time! What am i doing wrong? What test can i do? I'm trying to shoot drag cars and i am bummed seeing it wasnt a problem with my Rebel:confused:

Have you tried using manual (or Av or Tv) mode?

What are all your settings? Include NR, AF settings, and the like. And what do you mean "I cannot get my 7d to burst pictures"? Does it only ever shoot single shots? Does it do only a couple of shots? What does it do?

Just checking you've got the drive mode set to continuous/high speed continuous ... and then what happens next, as you hold the shutter down does it just refuse to fire more than one shot?

Edit - just had a thought - did you usually have your Rebel in its "sports" mode setting to achieve a burst of photos? As you know, this can't be done on the 7D since it doesn't have a sports mode so you need to set the drive mode manually instead.
Is this what's happening or am I over-simplyfing the problem?

Edit again - "simplyfing"? I think being out in the heat all day today has deep fried my brain. Please pretend I wrote "simplifying"! :lol:

You mean "tried reading the manual".

It's one thing to not reach 8fps (due to shooting conditions). But for one to say they can't get their camera to burst pictures, taking that literally, would suggest someone didn't switch to burst and/or highspeed burst mode.

Exactly,

Coming from a 20D the burst speed on the 7D was actually shocking.

yes i did set to the multiple pictures settings. i would get it to work only in CA mode and then it would mysteriously quit working, then i would turn the camera off and then back on and it works. im ready to send the camera into canon. i also have a problem when shooting video, when i replay it it has a green pixelating like 2/3rds way down thatgoes in and out. Either im doing something very wrong or i have a lemon!

Or perhaps you have a bad CF card? Maybe it won't let you clear the buffer as it's not allowing the camera to write to it fast enough/properly? And it's not recording the video correctly?

Just speculation on my part but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try different CF cards.

thanks, ill try that, im wondering with the pic burst im using a canon ef 75-300mm 1:4-5.6 IS Lens has something to do with it. i use the stock lens for video.

I don't think the lens would matter for video. It just needs to be able to write at a certain speed (which isn't that fast to begin with). I'm using an older 16gb transcend "133x" card and it works fine with 1080p. I just can't record video AND take an 18mp snapshot (raw+jpg) at the same time, else the video clunks out cuz of write speed problems. :lol:

But the way you describe the video being corrupted, it's quite possible something might be amiss with your CF card. And if after ruling out it's not the CF, then at least you know you've done as much as you can to test out the puppy before sending it into Canon for eval/fix.

Where are you seeing this setting you are calling "Continuous/High Speed Continuous"?

Are you referring to the 3-boxes with and without the "H"?
