On the back LCD, you will be able to see what your continuous shooting mode is set to. Make sure it is set to 'Hi' and not 'Lo'

I was going to suggest asking lightrules, but have been beaten to it.

It was a bit rough but seriously in time it took to go online and make a post you could have opened the manual and learned a lot more than how to shoot at 8fps.

Another way would be to push the shutter button 8 times really, really, really quickly - hahaha

Lol I would love to see that! And yes, you can't imagine the things you will learn by just looking in the manual.

I don't get this either. I personally love to read the manuals. Why do some people avoid reading the manual?

When you photographed the manual, you should have had it open to page 93 where it explains how to set the camera up to shoot at 8FPS :)

Well here's my not jumping on the RTFM rant.

If you have the setting at H and it still doesn't shoot 8FPS as mine refused to do... make sure you are not using cheapo batteries and only the Canon battery. Mine only shoots 8 fps when using the Canon batteries... even using a grip with LiPo AA's won't work.
