Shooting Continuous

Thank you DawgPics. I think I'm limited to 5 shots before buffer fills because, as i've been playing around, I'm using an old card: SanDisk Ultra 15MB/s, Class 4. Pretty sure i need to put in one of my newer cards.....

Glad it is sorted.
Like I said, anything more technical than frame rate, and my brain goes mushy.
I see I misunderstood the part where the camera actually was stopping on it's own after 5 shots. Sorry about that. Wasn't trying to be condescending or anything. It think my brain got confused when you said you thought that would happen only in CH. I think I now understand what you were trying to say.

Have fun.

Since I don't know anything about write speeds, I looked at the specs. You get a whopping 10 image buffer capacity under optimal circumstances with 14 bit compressed Raw using a 16gig 95MB/s card.
JPeg you get up to 100 buffer capacity depending on the settings. Let us know what happens when you use a faster card.

My D300 would bog down considerably when trying to shoot long exposures consecutively. It was frustrating.

Aren't CL and CH frame rates changeable in the settings? Perhaps that option is not available in that model. Depending on the settings, you may also have a long lag time when capturing the overexposed frames when bracketing exposure.
