Check whether you have the high ISO noise reduction/long exposure noise reduction turned on as I vaguely remember a thread back when the t4i launched along a similar vein to your thread and this was a contributing factor.
Thanks, I will look into that tonight!

You won't get much more RAW buffer with these entry level cameras and it sounds that even a 1D series would not do what you want! What you want is video like spraying - so switch to video instead

I'm not trying to be a critic, but he whole spray and pray idea negates the whole idea of being a photographer and framing the shot that you want. Better off just filming and breaking down the frames into shots.

Completely agree. Buy a video camera or learn to be a photographer.

I could be wrong but the impression I got is not that burst is being used to spray and pray in the hope of catching one good shot amid the burst of images but is to create a sequence of images showing the whole of the players movement from start to finish.
Possibly to achieve this sort of thing: http://www.lboro.ac.uk …hanics/images/brendan.jpg
Thanks, but I am not looking to take video. Shake n Vac is correct. I am wanting to capture the entire series of events from the time the player decides to make his move, till the time its complete.

The T5i should be up to date as far as firmware but you may want to check or perhaps even do a reflash. There was someone here a few months back that was having issues which seemed to be cleared up with a firmware revision.
I will double check the firmware when I get home. Hopefully it should be up to date as it is not that old, but who knows how long its been in a warehouse!

Have you got any sample images to share with us?
I will dig up a couple when I get home.

The Rebel series don't have a focus priority setting, they fire when you press the shutter. Interestingly I've heard that the 60D at least WILL do focus priority when on "sports" mode, but in the manual control modes there is no setting for this. I think it is the same for the T5i.
Finally, back to the OP:
Shoot in jpeg. What PP do you do that you can only do with a RAW file? Shooting in S3 means you are shooting in a lossy RAW format anyway - much of the data is discarded and your end result is likely WORSE than a standard full resolution jpeg file. Honestly the Digic 5 based cameras do such a good job with jpeg processing that unless you are going to be lifting shadows or recovering highlights all the time, the jpegs are more than acceptible quality. I don't personally believe in shooting in RAW just for the sake of shooting in RAW, I use jpeg most of the time and always when I am bursting. The time and storage requirements just don't make RAW appealing to me in most applications. There are times when it is the correct tool and I will use it, but not for probably 95% of the time I am using the camera.
I shot just a bunch of random things in the S3, I did not use it for actual production use, which is how I figured out that it would still only do 6 images at a go. Given the environment we play in, its really hard to get great settings configured because it is a) down in a valley under a trees, b) there is a large open area between the two woods that is used for play as well. So what I do is try to get the best settings, then adjust them in photoshop within reason to bring out what I want. I see what you are saying though, I will try jpeg next time I'm out there and see if that works. But I've tried all of the different file settings (raw vs jpeg vs S1,S3, etc) and it will only give me 6 shots max
