Fast-shooting digital camera?

by ElFrancis / January 2, 2004 10:05 AM PST

I am looking for a digital camera that has the ability to take 3 or 4 shots in rapid succession. I have tried many of the entry level point and shoot cameras that friends have and they all seem to have an unacceptable delay between shots as the camera writes the image to the removable media. Can anyone recommend a good rapid action camera in the consumer price range (<$1000)?

http://www.dpreview.com has reviews on many better cameras and some will do a fast sequence of so many before writing to the memory card.

go for a canon DSLR

I shoot mostly stop-action sports photography, so I just upgraded to a Canon 40d that shoots at 6.5 frames per second. I had to upgrade to a faster speed CF card to handle the large flow of image files. My current Rig is my 40D with the BG-E2N vertical battery grip, a canon EF 800mm f/5.6L lens, a Bogen 680B monopod, and a 32gb Sandisk extreme III CF card.

If you had the money for the $11,000 800mm lens then why didn't you buy the 1D MarkIII for much better performance for sports?
