Re: One thing many existing Olympus users expect from the new camera - BIF!

Ian, I have no way of accurately measuring the actual burst rate on the Canon using CAF (Servo) but I set it at H which is officially 8fps and it seems to be about that, slows down after about 10-12 RAW shots. Interestingly the 7D has a function which apparently maintains AF during H burst setting.

Another important point about BIF is that it is sometimes worth using a shorter focal length than the 300mm we seem to aspire to - much easier to track and AF, and most modern camera images can stand the extra cropping.
