    I guess there are situations where such a frame rate helps.. as for me personally,I would not need it since I spend too much time thinking in between shots ... and I do not do much sports photography or papparazzi work.

    Could be interesting though for creative photography to create series of quick moving objects.


    BTW, I wonder if the shutter heats up at all from this. If it does, that would certainly reduce the shutter's lifetime.

    too bad it can only do the 10fps burst for 110 or so frames, that gives you a nice 10 seconds of pictures, but I'd rather have a slower FPS rate (I know, you loose bragging rights) but allow it to shoot indefinitely.

    haha, well movies do 29 fps.

    my K10D does 3fps until the memory is full, and it is very useful if you arent sure when the action is going to happen but you know it will come and go quickly.

    for example, in AZ I went shooting with my uncle, brother and dad, and with the 3 fps shooting I could just hold it down while they unloaded and got some nice shots with barrel smoke and ejected brass (3 in one of the shots even, not bad for semi auto).

    with 5fps you'd capture more, and you wouldn't have a 10 second window, but rather until the card fills.

    add this camera and the Sigma 200-500mm f2.8 lens you've got a sport photographer with a hernia. Or a WMD. :p

    I would never use 10fps either... but still I want it for the same reason they climbed Everest... "because it's there" :lol:

    not at all mate, the old film version the EOS 1V with booster drive was also 10fps and even the F1n (1984) was 14fps with the right motordrive http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/canonf1/html/canonf1nhighspeed.htm

    Even the EOS3 was 7fps with the right batteries in the drive and that was tested for over 400,000 shutter operations by Chasseur d'Image magazine

    I know about the boosted old cameras :)

    But maybe their shutters were built more solid? I do not trust modern technology ;)

    And wait ... 400,000 .. with 10 per second that makes 40,000 seconds, or better: 11 hours lifetime for the shutter in constant operation ... hmm, that is not really a long time :p
