    Continuous Mode (Burst Mode)

    I'm told my D80 will shoot up to 3 frames per second in burst mode - however, after attending a boxing match as a ringside photographer I was disappointed when I realized that burst mode was not making much of a difference. Is there another setting that I need to adjust? I was in manual mode with my shutter speed at 200 and my F-stop at 4.5. ISO was set to 500.

    Thanks for any help or tips!

    Thank you for getting back to me

    I probably should have specified a bit better
    I was fine with the images - though they were a bit under-exposed - but I don't think the camera was actually moving at 3 frames per second. It seemed much slower, barely faster than what I could do by manually clicking the shutter button.

    If you want more frames per second get yourself a D300/D300s or a D700...What lens are you using...

    If you have a 50mm F1.8 you could set it a little faster
