"Burst Mode Speed"


US
          

Hello All, I recently purchased a D5000 and am really pleased with the quality of the pictures! Being new to photography with anything other than point and shoot I am having to learn a lot of what I'm sure is commonplace to veteran photographers...but I'm getting there!
What I can't seem to figure out is how to get my burst mode to take photos at a speed faster than 1 per second. All of the reviews say that it should be able to take 4 per second. I purchased a SanDisk Extreme 4GB card capable of writing 30MB a second, but to no avail. Regardless of what I try I can only take 1 picture a second. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

There are a variety of options that reduce frame rate. One of them is shutter speed! Others: noise reduction, flash, red-eye reduction, exposure delay, etc. Also, are you sure you're set to Ch (continuous high speed)? (I don't know how to set a D5000, but it's on every other DSLR I've used.)

Make sure your release mode is set to continuous. I get 4 fps. As mentioned above there are factors that will slow this down considerably, focus being one of them. Camera won't shoot unless focused.

Thanks for the reply. It is in continuous mode when I shoot. I have tried using AUTO, AUTO with no flash, all of the manual settings, changing the picture sizes and quality. It still shoots 1 frame a second. I read here somewhere about a recall...did that have anything to do with this situation? I'll have to find that thread again. Still trying anything...

The recall has nothing to do with continuous mode.

Do you have Exposure Delay Mode turned on? See pg 159 of your manual. See pg 153 to see how to access the menu.
If this is on, turn it off.
