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.
