What camera settings hold D800 frame rate below 4fps?
Dec 8, 2012

I'm renting a D800 and am not getting anywhere near 4fps shooting RAW (12-bit, lossless compressed).  I remember reading somewhere that there are some camera settings that will inhibit the frame rate and hold it below 4fps.  Can anyone point me to a list of camera settings that affect the frame rate?

FYI, I'm talking only about short bursts of frames that do not fill the buffer (e.g. 5-6 frames at a time) so the CF card speed shouldn't matter.
