Anyone else have an issue with their 40D not anywhere near 6.5 FPS? I've checked everything, set my custom functions to default, HTP off, High ISO Noise Reduction off, high shutter speeds, continuous mode, etcetera, etc.

It must be around 2.5 FPS at most. Something isn't right.

Anyone have any input or am I just missing something? My 20D is smokin' it in the FPS dept.

[Did a search already and didn't find much.]

What aperture, shutter speed and ISo you shooting at? What is the lighting conditions. If these things are right then you have a faulty camera. The camera does what it id designed to do if it is being used in the right conditions.


Gear List? My gear is bigger than yours? Just shoot have fun...

I've put on my 30F1.4, 1755 f2.8 IS, 100 F2, you name it. Shooting all at f2.8 or so, high shutter speeds of about 1/2000th to 1/4000th, my 20D would be at 5FPS with these settings. The 40D feels like the 5D with its 3FPS. Slow as heck.

I just can't figure it out. And I can't come to believe I got a lemon 40D either.

Given similar conditions and settings there's no reasonable explanation that your 20D should be anywheres near smoking the 40D. I'd place my money on defective.

I know you've been around the block, so I hate to ask such a simple question.

You do know there are two burst modes, right? High and Low? 6ish and 3ish fps.

One of the review sites (don't recall which one though) actually mentioned this but not being that slow, yet indeed slower than the Canon claim of 6.5 fps.

Do you have ISO noise reduction set in the CF? I think that will significantly slow it down.

Toney, this baby is not even close to 6.5 FPS. Something's not right.

Flip through the drive modes. One has multiple boxes(thats the slow one). The other has an 'H' and multiple boxes.

There are two burst modes on the 30D and 40D, low and high bursts

If you cycle through the drive mode you will see one shot, then the normal graphic for burst, then burst with an H for high.

EVERYONE REPEAT AFTER ME: LIGHTRULES IS AN IDIOT! :evil:

Thanks JC4, you've solved my problem. Ridiculous, and flat out embarrassing. I just hope PetKal doesn't see this thread. :lol:

6.5 FPS is a lovely sound...

[FWIW, my 20D doesn't have this different mode so I never even thought about it.]
