One of the selling point to me was the 6.5 fps with Canon 40D, and I just got it. Somehow, no matter what setting I use I get about 3 fps, same as my 5D. On the 40D I use a vertical grip with two fully charged batteries. I tried the Live View settings:
- Live view off
- Silent mode 1, 2 or disable (made no difference)
- 16GB Sandisk III (shot with or without the CF card)
I fired 40D side by side with the 5D. Just can't get it over 3 fps.
anyone know how I can get 6.5 fps? Thanks!
If you are only getting 3fps, make sure you are in the right drive mode. There is a continuous mode and a continuous High mode. Make sure yours has the (H).
