Hi Kriss, there's plenty of info on the XTi in our full review here!

http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon400D/

and compared to the D80 and Sony A100 in our group test here:

You thinking of changing sides?

Hi Kriss,

Yes...they are the same.

Digital Rebel XTi = EOS 400D and I think it is also called the "Kiss X"

Yep, good old Canon manages to confuse everyone with their names.

It's called the Rebel XTi in North America.

It's called the Kiss X Digital in Japan

And it's called the EOS 400D almost everywhere else.

I wish they'd just use the same name. It's the same with the compacts too - I've just reviewed what most regions call the Digital Ixus 860IS, but that's called the PowerShot SD870 IS in North America. Crazy! They could at least have used the same number!

Hi Kriss.
It can take about 3 fps, and has a buffer of about 27 pics (it also depends on your card speed, from my experience)
You can find all the technical specifications of the 400D (Rebel XTi) in Canon site:

Hi.
3 FPS is usually enough for most people.
About the buffer, these cameras write to the memory card slower than they shoot, so they need a buffer to save the pictures until they are written to the card.
The XTi has a buffer for about 27 pictures in one continuous shot. Of course, the number of continuous pictures depends on the card speed as well. If you have a slow card you'll see that at a certain point, the camera will start taking pictures slower than 3 FPS.
With my 350D and X25 card, after about 9 pictures it slowed down to 1 FPS. With Sandisk X133 only after about 15 pics it slowed down for just a bit and then continued with 3 FPS.

Anyway, I guess that now, when the buffer is large enough, it's not really important, since there are no many people that take 30 pictures in 10 seconds

I do, when you are shooting trains moving at over 100Mph (160Kph) I have my camera (40D) on Hi speed shooting 6.5 fps.

Hmmm. What are you asking here? Do you want some pictures of the camera? If you want pictures taken with the camera I think it only makes sense to specify your target lens and/or ISO setting. Perhaps it would also be useful if you could suggest the sort of samples you need which weren't covered by Gordon's review. :idea:

Bob.
