My 7D always just says "4" in the viewfinder, at the bottom-right. I believe this is the number of shots that can currently be taken at max FPS, i.e. into the camera's memory, before the data gets transferred to the CF card.
So basically, if I put Drive mode to "many shots, fast mode", I get ONLY 4 shots at about 8FPS, and then it pauses to think about it and transfer the shots to the card, and then resumes for a couple of shots, pauses again, etc..
Why do I only get 4 shots before it pauses?
I have it set to JPG format, max resolution, and NO RAW ENABLED.
Thanks in advance,
