Shutter Lag After Continuous Shooting For Canon Rebel Xti
I use the Continuous Shooting (Portrait mode) to take pictures especially of my kiddos as they can't hold a pose well and I have to be fast to capture them. But after the first few 5 or 6 pictures, the camera becomes v. slow and keeps saying "Busy" and it seems like the flash is taking a long time to reload. I'm afraid I'm totally a newbie here and I bought the Canon Rebel Xti purely because it is so much faster than my Olympus digital camera. But now it is totally failing to do its job properly.

This is likely. Action shots require a fast shutter speed which in turns requires more light. Aside from a very expensive lens, about the only thing you can do is try to increase the light, slow the shutter speed, and increase your ISO rating to 1600.
If the camera appears to be working properly in some pictures and not others I'm going to suggest you look at your Shooting Modes. It's very possible that the mode dial has been turned to the TV mode which is Shutter Priority. With the Rebel having a shutter speed of 30 seconds to 1/4000 you may click the shutter to take a pictures and the camera appear not to take the picture. A few seconds later the shutter closes and the mirror drops. This also can happen if you are in the Night Portrait mode. The length of time my be longer if the lens cap is immediately placed on the lens.
Change your mode to "P" program until you become more familiar with the camera functions and settings
Frustrating I am sure. I had the same problem on my first XTi. I cannot remember what the settings were, but I think I was set for portrait and had flash set as the white balance default source. Therefore the camera always popped up the flash assuming that I wanted or needed fill flash.
Change you white balance to sun/shade/tungston etc as is appropriate, choose a faster ISO speed in lower light levels and try using the P or Tv mode and use a shutter speed that generates a middle range aperature for your particular lens.
If you're shooting in the full Auto mode, you are not taking advantage of the capabilities of your digital SLR. Your pictures are blurry because the shutter has to stay open long enough to properly expose the picture, but the people are moving while the shutter is open. You need to increase your shutter speed or increase your ISO, which means you have to select another mode on your camera. You could invest in a "faster" lens, which means that it can allow more light into your camera, but is also more expensive. Try this excellent tutorial on using a digital SLR, then try it out with your camera (use your camera manual to find the correct mode selections, etc.)
The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.
It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at
the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured
in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is
possible to print the image with the date and time via printing
software. Please see the documentation for the software package that
you use for printing images for the proper procedure.
I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf
will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the
little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent
down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera)
the small button which deactivates the pop-up
flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a
little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and
voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti,
the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch
and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a
must be something to do with the mode you are using like auto mode, manual mode P mode so on...havn't use anything else the the manual mode so do a hit and trial procedure. Also be sure to increase the shutter speed...
sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal) try using flash pointed up to ceiling. also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place. check manual for settings for using flash. mark
