    No bike photos from me lately because I haven't been on the bike since November. I've been doing nothing but skiing. I never would have thought it was possible. But I do not miss riding my bike right now. Weird, huh?

    Seems to me like the buffer doesn't last very long?

    Your XTi

    Remember, I shot all of Sea Otter last year with my XTi. Knowing how to time your shots is better than having a camera where you can just hold down the button and pick one out later. However, for dirt jumping and some types of racing, this type of speed does help. I just bought a Canon EOS 40D for that reason.

    To put things in perspective for those of you who are interested, most entry-level DSLRs (Canon Digital Rebel XTi, Nikon D40x, etc.) can capture 3 frames-per-second. The next step up is usually 5 frames-per-second. The recent Canon EOS 40D can capture 6.5 FPS. Canon's fastest camera, the EOS-1D Mark III, can capture 8.5 FPS. And of course, there's the Nikon D3 which can capture 9 FPS. The old Canon EOS-1Vs 35mm SLR could do 10 frames-per-second.

    A fast camera won't take good pictures for you, though. It only helps you take more photos. If you take crappy pictures, it just means more junk. Just as with mountain biking, skill and technique are always the most important things. You can't just buy the same bike that Sam Hill is racing and expect to ride like him.

    For those of you who are interested, my site has a great dedicated digital SLR forum: http://forums.photographyreview.com/...isplay.php?f=5

    The Mark III does 10 frames a second. The older mark II did 8.5.

    I have yet to use the 8.5 FPS on the Mark IIn, the color and tracking is amazing but FPS dont mean a ton as you said! Good glass rules.... 300 F2.8
    Here is the CANON BTW...
