Hi all, this is my first post/thread on the boards after being a lurker.
I am a semi-beginner (getting more and more into advanced stuff here-and-there). I currently only have an XSi with a few decent lenses.
I know all features of the XSi, all indicators and icons, etc.. from reading online, reading the booklet several times, whatever..
but there are a few icons/animations I still don't understand:
1. In the VF display, when you half-press the shutter release with the pop-up flash released, what is the meaning of the little meter that drops down inward from several bars on each side to none? I've figured out that it only happens with red-eye reduction on (the red-eye lamp is the orange one correct?) and the meter only drops down when I continue holding the shutter half-way.
2. The red-eye lamp is the orange one correct? They actually don't mention this in the booklet..
3. Another thing they don't explain in the booklet is max burst. I think I understand that the max burst number (in the VF display, the right bottom corner number next to the solid circular dot), is how many rapid shots can be taken before there is a write-delay to the memory card.
4. Possibly related to number 3 (I'm not sure), what is buffer or buffer number in definition and relating to the display/actions of this body?
