Hi all,

I am hoping someone can help me figure out what I may have done to the settings on my D7K. I was photographing my son's football game, and two things occurred that have me confused. I am not aware of having changed anything settings wise, but here is what happened; normally, I am able to shoot 6 or 7 frames in very quick succession to capture action. I am using AF-C mode, and it is set to focus priority. Yesterday, with the camera set to continuous high, it would only shoot 2-3 frames before stalling, almost as if not writing to the SD card quickly enough. I simply could not figure out what was going on. I was shooting in aperture priority, with plenty of light. When I was able to check the images, I noticed that most of the images seemed to follow a pattern; the 1st image was normally exposed, and the next image was a stop or two overexposed. This pattern repeated throughout the shoot, almost as if bracketing had been set up. I am attaching two images to show this odd effect. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
