Daft question of the night/week
Oly state a frame rate of 2.5 fps. now I normally shoot in raw on a 40X cf card, I feel i am possibly not getting 2.5 fps is there a way of increasing the rate to get a little more out of the camera nearer to 2.5 fps. Or am i probaly getting that?
Any ideas appreciated

I'm not sure how you can check frame rate.

But if you are shooting C-AF the frame rate will be dependant on how quickly the camera and lens reacts to a changing focus - this will always be slower than the rated speed.

mike,

you should get 2.5 frames til the buffer fills, then it slows considerably.... your card is quite slow, my Sandisk writes at 266x, so try a better, faster card..

The E-500 won't benefit fully from UDMA cards (233x and up). A 133x type card might be best for value and performance.
