Thanks for the replies guys, I didn't think ISO had anything to do with this but it was a common factor in all cases before I tried 6400, the reason is in my original post.

I am in Australia and we do not have firmware 2.0 till August apparently but I will check again tomorrow.

This isn't a problem with the camera that is corrected by firmware. It is a problem with you having the drive mode of the camera set to one of the continous shooting modes. The only reason I meantioned the firmware V2 manual, is how to correctly set your drive mode is listed on page 93 of the original manual, and page 97 of the new manual.

Set your drive mode to 'Single Shooting', this will correct the 'problem'.
