So, after looking at a few other topics somewhat related to my issue, I think I have my answer but I figured I better ask the pro's to be sure. :o

I use the Sandisk Ultra Class 10 cards in my camera however I have noticed that when I attempt to take multiple shots it will stop after 9 and hang for a moment then will allow me to take 9 more. If it's single shot, no problems.

This problem occurs when using raw or jpeg, there's no difference. Common theme on the other threads is that Canon doesn't have the fastest interface to the sd's until you starting getting into the much higher $$ range cameras.

So am I basically stuck with just the 9 limit or would a faster SD help?


Camera(s): 7D, (wishing for a 5dm3)
Lenses: Tamron 70-200 f2.8 VC / Tamron 75-300 f/4-5.6 / Canon Nifty Fifty / Tamron 10-24 f/3.5-4.5
Cards: 16GB/32Gb SanDisks CF

Have you looked in the manual for the number of shots in a "burst"? See page 89, burst is 6 images for best raw only and 22 for best jpeg only. Post an image you've taken when you hit the wall and we can likely tell you more, just make sure the EXIF info is intact.

The T5i supports the UHS-1 standard, which I believe is the fastest available today:

Recording Media
SD card, SDHC card, SDXC memory card

* Compatible with Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) memory cards and Eye-Fi cards.

Are your cards UHS-1 compliant? I think UHS-1 is nearly equivalent to Class 10, but more efficient. UHS cards have special symbols, a U with a 1 in it.

All that said, I think your bottleneck is the number of images the camera can handle in burst. Does the viewfinder show this information? Usually there is a little number on the right side next to the light meter.

*facepalm* The manual was the first place I looked but apparently what I was looking for wasn't in the section I thought it was under.. Apparently I need to RTFM again :o

The viewfinder does show a number and its always 9, even taking it down to the lowest quality image, still shows 9.

I don't think my cards are UHS :(
