D300 does 8fps without vertical grip

Not sure why the "D300 8fps" postings yesterday didn't get that much attention. Probably most people didn't realize it was done without the vertical grip and with the standard D300 battery.

I recommend to check these posts, it was not a 1 of April joke. It works. You just need to set E5 and E6 to flash only, don't pop up the flash, set the exposure to "M" and the release mode to "S" (single shot), activate bracketing and set it to 9F. Then you hold the bracketing button (normally mapped to the function button) down and at the same time the release button. The 9 shots (all with the same exposure you have manually selected) are fired at 8 frames per second instead of the normal 6 fps. After the 9 shots you have to release and press again the shutter button to get additional 9 shots.

Without this settings (also in "P" mode) you can get also continuous 8 frames per second if you are able to press the shutter release 8 times per second.

Cheers

Carl
