There is really not to much difference between the d90 and t2i in burst rate, 4 vs 3.6.

6 Raw per burst hurts my feelings when I'm shooting my kids sports though for sure. (t2i)

Well that is not going to be much you can do in RAW, as the memory chip write speed is the bottle neck. You will most likely run into the same issue with the D90. With raw a camera with a big buffer and super fast CF cards have a major advantage. The udma compact flash at 600x is the way to go. Even with a class 10 chip I can only burst 9 shots with my T1i. So the d90 is not going to fair much better.

Well with the T2i the max is 6, I have a class 10 and I get lucky to get the full 6 off at the burst rate.

Your raw files are around 18mp, 30% larger then the D90 at 12mp. So it gets to the buffer limit a bit quicker I think. And it is aboiut 20% larger then the T1i's 15mp. So it seems about right that you can burst about 6, but I would have expected closer to 7 before the buffer limit with the t2i.

If you need longer burst rates, I would shoot in the highest jpeg. You will still get some good results and it is just as easy to edit with photoshop or other editing software.

This is what my last post was referring to. The T2i Raw + Jpeg is a little over 20mp and the burst rate is a little over 3 frames per second. But yes I get about 7 shots before it slows down, with a Sandisk 30mg/sec card. I wish the T2i was a little closer to the frames/sec of the 7D.

Waoldrifleman,

The 7D is a 1400 dollar body, the T2i is a 800 dollar body that 600 dollar difference accounts for the huge performance difference Also the 7D is a CF system, and match with a 600x card will make using the machine burst rate much easier. You are comparing the t2i to a camera 2 levels higher. The next up would be the 50d and 60d if it comes out.
