I was shooting a game today and had trouble with my fps using the 7D.
I noticed that the camera is not always capable of shooting 8 fps even though the buffer is not even close to being full, shutter speed is 1/800+ and setting is set to 8 fps. I used zone af / al servo to focus. Noise reduction was off.
It doesn't always do that but only when i'm tracking moving subjects. Then it's unable to shoot 8 fps, i can clearly hear it's not 8 fps. (more like 3fps)
Anybody else experienced that? Why does it happen? Cant find it in the manual.
I have 1 theory but i want to here what you guys are thinking THX!
