Nothing unusual to come back with 3k+ images from even a partial day at a race track or tennis event.

Highest number was close to 10k one day at the Aus Open tennis a few years back now. That day spanned over 12hrs of shooting

Phil do you mind me asking how large and what type your memory cards are?

I use 64Gb Cards now in dual slots set up generally as Raw+JPG to card 1 with overflow to card 2,

I was using 32Gb cards for a while

on bigger days as soon as card 1 is full it is removed and content copied to portable storage, it's inserted back in, formatted and card2 allowed to fill and flow over back to card 1 and process repeated if needed.

At events like the Tennis were there is a break both cards will get copied to portable storage between matches and once we have confirmed files are on storage cards formatted and we start again

apart from the end of day cull 18fps is addictive and even very short bursts add up over 3 to 8 hours

I can normally cull a few thousand in an evening if needed.
