I'm not sure if this has been posted here, but I've been playing around shooting on the D700 and have found out I can get a much faster frame rate using the single shot and having a trigger-happy finger than using the Ch mode. Without the battery grip, in Ch mode, you're limited to around 5fps. But in S mode, it fires as fast as I can fully press the shutter release button. And this is without resorting to tricks such as the Func + Bracketing thingy on the D300. :biggrin: I reckon I hit around 9-10fps and whether you're shooting in jpeg or RAW seems to have no effect, other than the limitations of flushing the buffer to compact flash. I then tried this on my D200 and it doesn't work - the camera only fires a shot every "now and then" and certainly doesn't keep up with my repititious trigger finger. Of course, I don't expect it to be continuous focus during this extreme rapid fire, but may be handy in static situations :smile: Anyone else come across this before?
