Re: burst rate

or turn off jpeg and shoot raw - helps the burst rate a lot

Also use fast CF cards

I haven't tried it yet, but I would not be surprised if the overhead in creating a JPEG gives JPEG's not as good a duration burst rate compared to Raws. I know in my case shooting my grandkid's soccer games, just turning off JPEG and only writing Raws with a 600x CF card did the trick.

Timing for the 5D3:

JPEG Large/Fine - 6 fps until card full

RAW - 6 fps for 17 frames, 2.7 fps after buffer full (with fast CF card)

RAW+JPEG Fine - 6 fps for 7 frames, 2.0 fps after buffer full
