Your an idiot. This is a professional camera, and there is many uses for 10 frames per second.

-Sports photography (MANY professionals sports photographers will love 10fps)
-Event photographers
-Wildlife photographers
-Storm photographers

Those are the ones I can come up with off the top of my head. This is a professional level camera, meant for the professional market.

Just because your too useless to think of a purpose for the feature, doesn't mean the feature is useless.
I know professional photographers, my uncle being one. AND the head photographer of National Geographic being one (who is currently organising to give me some lessons). And both of THEM (being people with worthwhile photographic opinions) tell me that a REAL photographer doesnt need 10FPS to get a good photo.

Now. You, being the random person you are, have come here to call me an idiot. Where are YOUR facts? I have been told by these reputable photographers that on average they would snap off two or maybe three shots. NOT 10. 2-3 seems a more reasonable number no?

Consider your mentioning of "MANY professionals sports photographers will love 10fps"
Try taking 10, on-target AND in focus images of a rally car? Not going to happen.

Storm photographers would be equally able to use a large variety of other cameras. My nikon isnt even in the professional range, and it shoots to 1/4000th of a second multiple times. That is perfectly adquate for this purpose.

As for white water rafting, they arnt travelling THAT fast. So the fact that your camera can get off more shots is irrelevant compared to the timing required of the photographers.

On that note i bid you all goodnight. :toast:

This Camera CANNOT POSSIBLY be 10 times as good as my S3 IS. Waste of money.

I always thought Canon was better I have a Canon Eos for work. However, Nikon is more popular. I am probably the only guy totting a Canon camera period in my field of work.

Canon makes great cameras, however I think 4000USD is a bit much. Maybe 1000, but thats about all Id pay for it. A great camera also makes for a good shot ex-reven. You have to have one that allows you to do all that stuff.

Another thing is that lens used makes all the difference in the world. You can do fairly well with a cheaper digital camera with a good quality lens. I do believe (if memory servers correctly) is were Nikon out do Canon.

yeah definately, just pointing out that perhaps its a bit of overkill.

A quality lens is definately important. Inferior quality lenses tend to restrict the type of photos you are taking. Eg - if you want to take a shot with a high shutter speed, you can be restricted by the apeture of the camera lens. Which is why higher speed lenses with lower apetures are so expensive.

Another important part of a dslr is the memory you are using. Its pointless having a "10fps camera" with $40 worth of crappy no-name-brand memory out of taiwan. Your memory needs to be high speed (to keep up with the speed the user is taking photos) and it should (obviously) be high capacity, 1GB or more recommended.

Finally, dont forget extra memory/batteries just in case :), i havnt needed them just yet, but they come in handy on those "intense" days. I took about 250 photos today, maxed out my card and had to miss a few great shots :(.

Yeah, entry level DSLRs are most common to have a Nikon. But I like that the Rebel series has slightly wider dynamic range. Even though I will probably end up with a used D50 due to budget.

Also, ex-raven, you wont need a highspeed card to shoot at 10fps. Because they photos are being saved into a buffer. Which should be approximately 1024MB if you consider that it can shoot 37 RAW files in 3.7 seconds. Not even the fastest memory cards could do that, so it HAS to be shot to a buffer.

However, where the faster cards will come into play is clearing the buffer. As clearing a full buffer could easily take many minutes.

If you know that 10MP RAW files are around 20-25MB EACH, and it can shoot 10 per second, thats 200-250MB per SECOND that needs to be saved. You quickly realize how advanced the buffer system in this camera must be. It most likely has one buffer of 512MB for each DIGIC processor.

Anyone who is not impressed by the capabilities of this buffer system obviously have little idea about how this technology works.
