    What is the lowest possible shutter speed I can use on a Canon XTi/400D whilst maintain the stated 3fps?

    Obviously anything longer that 1/3 of a second would not permit you to shoot 3fps.

    That and then im sure there will be a little lag. The longer the exposure the longer it takes to process the image and save it to the card.


    But why would this be important? When shooting at 1/3 your usually not shooting something fast that would require consecutive shots that fast.

    And throw in a hundred milliseconds for mirror lag since it flips up for every photo.

    Jamesino. Do you have the rebel now? The max speed of the XTI is 3FPS so it really depends on your lighting. I believe in daytime i've been able to set my ISO to 100 and still maintain 3fps. I had no reason to try that other than the fact I was testing capability of camera. If you have to do this than would a rebel be your first choice? What are you shooting?

    If I'm shooting at night I use a tripod and I go for one shot at a time. I'd have extremely blurry shots if I tried to shoot 3fps at night.
