Anyone here have problems with their T1i saying "Busy" all the time.We thought it was a slow card but it appears that's not the problem.Just wondering if this is a common problem with this camera-some people on other forums have complained too.

Are you sure its not the card? When I had my XTi a long time ago, the pictures on my card were corrupt. I sent it in to Canon and they said the logic board was bad and replaced it. DO you still have warranty?

I've never gotten that, Are you shooting High ISO RAW files with your noise reduction on High by any chance? that would slow the buffer significantly

that's what I was thinking. Every time I use the on camera flash with my XTI it pretty much stays at BUSY.

Popup/onboard flash, using Strong noise reduction, high ISO, will all slow the T1i down. As with almost every other questin/problem thread on this forum PLEASE POST SOME PICTURES WITH INTACT EXIF DATA! If you do that, we can check what settings you're using so we can help you. Without that data, we're shooting in the dark...

If you are shooting with on camera flash you will get it pretty regularly. The flash recycle time is very slow when the bulb circuit heats up.

Bingo. You're using too much flash. Raise the ISO.
