How do you set up to shoot 3 frames /second with a flash - I have seen people shooting many frames with the flash firing each time - how do I do that? - I have a 40d and a 580 ex II flash ?

Setting your camera on 1/4 power should do it (for one second). But I don't recommend shooting with flash that way.

Never tried that. Setting the FLASH on 1/4 power or lower might work.:lol:

You also need a power source that will recharge your flash quickly; preferably an external battery pack. If you take too many shots the thermal overload protection in the last will activate and either slow down or completely turn off the flash until it is cool enough to resume using. Also C.Fn-06:1 puts the speedlite in Quick Flash mode which allows you to fire it continuously at between 1/2 and 1/6 power.

Increasing the ISO will also help reduce the flash output and reduce recharge time, but the obvious downsides of higher ISO will be there (i.e. noise).
