So..........

How many frames per second should I be getting? I haven't counted exactly but I don't seem to be getting anything near the 10 fps based on sound.

My 7D2 sounds like a machine gun: my 1D lV doesn't. I'm using the same CF card in both. Any suggestions?

Check to see if you have focus as the priority. If so that can slow things down if it has not acquired focus. If you need to test then put this setting to release priority that way it doesn't matter if it has acquired focus. It will just fire away.

but when I hold down the shutter button for a burst, the most I've gotten is 3 frames.

I gotta ask...is it possible your maximum burst frame number has been set to 3 if that is all you are getting?..... C.Fn III 19 - Limit continuous shot count...

When I got my 1D4, it already had 130K on it, and it did then, and still does, rip them off at a speed that blows onlookers away (except my one colleague who has a 1D X). I don't think a correctly functioning shutter would be affected by the number of "clicks" at all ...

I'll check that out when I get home from work. I thought I had that disabled but I'll check to make sure.

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to determine.... if the shutter is working properly. I'll spend more time with it this week and see. It's probably nothing. I'm a little gun shy from my difficulties with my 7D2. I'm hoping that's all it is.

Kim, your sure you don't have it set to a low speed burst?

I know what you mean. Both my Sony a6000 and my 1Dx seem to blow my 1d4 away and then I found the Al Servo 1st/2nd img priority in C.FnIII. I changed it to #2 which is Release/Drive speed priority and now it fires much faster.

Jake,

That does sound like something I'd do..... but no, I checked that first thing. I suspect it's what Theron said because I know I did have focus selected instead of speed since I have chosen that or a similar choice on the 7D2 menu. I will go over that menu again when I get home. It's possible I won't have to select focus type issues over speed on the 1D IV like so many suggested with the 7D2.

I know I did that for sure... I don't think the 1D IV AF is a hmmmmmm sophisticated, perhaps as the 1DX. The 7D2 AF is supposed to be a descendant of the 1DX without the ______. It isn't quite a good, let's just say that.

Anyway, for reading this thread from the very beginning, I know the 1D IV is a very capable camera. I just have to get accustomed to its idiosyncracies. Sorry for all the Noob questions.

Ahh, well another way to test to eliminate the possibility of AF slowing things is to flip the switch on the lens to manual, that along with a manual exposure including a fast shutter speed upwards of 1/2000 or so should give you full speed fps.

Thank you all for your patience. I didn't get out today to take any more photos but I did check out the shutter speed after making a couple simple adjustments. I moved C.Fn III:2 a notch to the right and C.Fn IV:14 to enable.

I'm getting very decent shutter speeds in good light.

Now, finding time to get out to shoot. Painting a room tomorrow with my wife... Thanksgiving, then back to work this weekend. ;)

Did you get your 16-35L f/4 in yet? You're gonna love that thing.

I did. I haven't had a chance to use it much but I should be able to get out this week, if the weather holds. We're supposed to be in for a few days of rain but hopefully, just passing showers.

I might be imagining this but it seems to be that I'm getting closer to what I'm seeing as far as color goes. My birds look like I'm seeing them as I'm taking their photographs. Is this a known phenomenon or just something I'm "seeing" to confirm my purchase? It isn't that my 7D2 gets everything wrong, it's just that the 1D IV seems to be just a bit more right, if that makes any sense.

It just might be the 1D4 .... I met a Canon rep for Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana a week ago yesterday in Livonia, Michigan at a Canon Demo Day.

He asked me what I shot, and when I replied a 1D4 and 5D3, he said the "1D4 is a beast".

I asked him what he meant and he replied it was the most underestimated (and underpriced) body in the present new and used lineup.

I felt pretty good about that ... since he had a 5D3 personally, and used a 5DS and a 1D X frequently he had a good handle on several recent bodies.

He praised "the Beast" for it's handling, speed, versatility, exposure accuracy and colour fidelity ... guess what is my 1D4's new nickname?
