Top dial, do you have it set to high speed, on the left side of the camera?

Has it just started doing this?

What setting have you got it on the dial and what focus you got it on? If it cant lock easy it wont shoot fast.

Hmmm not sure what else off the top my head would cause this...

You need to set the dial on the left of the VF to 'Ch' to get 5fps.

The setting of 'Cl' to the left of the 'Ch' setting is controlled in software within the camera and is programmable via the menu system. This allows you to set the frame/sec rate >< 2 and 4 fps. Ensure you have it set to 'Ch' for 5fps.

Additionally, you need to be shooting in Manual mode - or Shutter priority - and using appropriately high enough shutter speeds to allow the camera to DELIVER 5fps... Using Aperture Priority or Program in low(er) light conditions will affect the ability to capture images at 5fps in these last two modes. Wink

Switch to Manual Mode - select 1/125th @ any aperture to see what I mean (using the 'Ch' setting.

IF there is still a problem... then the camera has a fault.
