    I suspected my comment would get some sort of reaction and understandably so. I'm not intentionally a fan of machine gun style photography. And in fact what I really enjoy about film is the slow, deliberate and intentional aspect of it. But when it comes to the digital camera I shoot a lot of sports. My kids are all three season athletes. Volleyball and basketball games, tennis matches and track meets are usually good for at least 500-600 frames per event. With four or five games a week it adds up. Of course the keeper rate is very low but fast fps is definitely a big bonus. I've also shot airshows and the first time I did that I shot 4000 frames in one day. Later I eased off on the shutter release a bit but still took a couple thousand.

    And I shoot birds. If you've ever tried capturing hovering and diving king fishers in action you probably know what I mean. When they are stationary it doesn't require a fast burst rate but when you are trying to capture that instant where the bird emerges from the water in a splash with a fish in it's mouth you can burn through a lot of memory very quickly.

    I may have exaggerated on the 100k number but I know for a fact that it has turned over (10k) at least 6 or 7 times since I bought it and probably more so I wouldn't be surprised if I'm close to that number.

    I figured it'd be a high-failure-rate kind of scenario. About 1/3 of the total actuations on my A700 are from a handful of outings with Frankman and AA when I was in Perth.

    Ah! Frank's bird work is really outstanding. I'm sure the better one gets at it fewer wasted frames one gets, but still, for that kind of work digital is a wonderful gift.

    Perhaps... but he was still shooting 1k+ frames in a morning of about 2-3 hours. Keeper rate not relevant if the best ones are good enough

    Buy yourself a Sony Z Video Camera with zeiss glass , your children will hug you at the future. You had been transfered to movie making and give a rest to your finger.
