My T2i says that it is busy after taking several pictures. It seems to take forever to review the images. Any thoughts?

If you've shot many concurrent pictures in a row, what you're doing is filling up the camera's buffer. It takes a moment for the images in that buffer to be written to your memory card, and you have to wait until there is space for a new picture to be taken before you can proceed.

my thoughts: should be more than several pictures (5 or 6?) but the Rebel models have a smaller internal buffer

Even with a 8Gb Sandisk Extreme III SDHC card it can take 7 seconds or more to write the buffer. Here's the link for performance. If you use a card with less speed that's most likely your problem. Processing speed isn't what the 7D is either but it should work for most.

Are these shots on long exposures? Like 30 second exposures?

I have a Canon T1i. Its buffer wasn't very large and once it filled it kind of slowed you down until it could get them all written. If you aren't using at least a class 6 card (class 10 is better), it is probably what your problem is. If you've recently switched from jpg to raw, it might be why you're noticing the sudden decrease in performance (just a guess).

I use these:http://www.amazon.com …1331352614&sr=1​-2-catcorr (external link)
for my T1i. Recently they had a sale where I got a 32GB one for $33. :)


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.

check and see if your long exposure noise reduction is turned off also

It could be whatever you're shooting in... Raw or JPEG?
It could also be the performance speed of the memory card. I remember I had a 4GB class 4 memory card and it took awhile after doing continous shots to process and it had always said 'busy'.
- So I order a 16GB class 10 memory card and its blazing fast! Best investment is always a good reliable memory card.

Just a note on the Scandisk SD cards, they come in 4 flavors.
Standard
Ultra
Extreme
Extreme Pro
Class 6 cards work fine, but Class 10 will be faster. Don't bother with the UHS-1 cards as your camera can not take advantage of their speed. However, the UHS-1 will download your images to you computer much faster, so there is a limited benefit.
