Canon could do it? Canon has done it...with several generations of film cameras. Last time I checked, the reflex mirror didn't care whether there was a CMOS sensor or emulsion-coated gelatin behind it.
yeah damn right... i just forgot the analog days.
the EOS-1N RS has done 10 FPS but doesnÂ´t count.
as it had a fixed mirror.
Not sure about others, but I know the EOS 1v (the only film SLR still in the lineup) shoots at 10 fps with the grip.
True about the 1N RS. In fact, the F1 (pre-EOS, FD-mount, but also with a pellicle mirror) reached 14 fps!
