    When I first started using my 450D in the creative mode on the
    continous shooting setting I could take 3 shots in large + raw or 5 in
    large only quality before the buffer was full. In lower quality
    settings I could take many more. Now I can only take 2 shots in any
    quality setting if I try to use the creative modes so that I can set
    ISO and shutter speed. In the auto mode set to sport it will still
    shoot multiple shots quite happlily. Can anyone tell me what I am
    doing wrong, please?

  2. When I first started using my 450D in the creative mode on the
    Battery age, Derek?

    I don't think that it is the battery. The one in current use holds
    its charge very well and I have tried a second one. Results still the
    same. I have also tried different memory cards, so I am still at a
    loss to explain. I've tried once on Canon's web site but I'll try
    again.

  4. I missed that it was still OK in other modes, Derek, when I posted, so I
    withdraw my battery suggestion. It almost sounds like half the memory has
    disappeared - could it be used by saved custom settings? But not /that/
    much memory!

    I hope that Canon will be able to resolve your problem.

    Cheers,
    David

    Yes, they did. Took a bit of searching on their site though. I had
    "High ISO Noise Reduction" selected. The extra time needed to process
    this was causing the problem. Can't find a warning about this in the
    EOS 450D manual.

  6. Yes, they did. Took a bit of searching on their site though. I had
    Obvious now they say! Glad that's resolved. Must remember that one in
    case I do something similar.

    Cheers,

    Not even "the maximum burst for continuous shoot will greatly
    decrease" on page 155?

    Yes, I missed that one because I was looking at pages for Continuous
    Shoot, not High ISO !
