Question about Canon EOS Rebel XS 35mm SLR Camera
Although a good SD card is worth considering it's not the only thing that determines the speed. In fact the shooting light has more to do with it then the memory card. The Rebels although not Pro cameras are pretty darn fast with the differences immeasurable in most cases with Pro cameras.
The Rebel will show the burst rate in the right corner of the viewfinder and if you noticed this rate changes with the light and shutter speeds. Sow the shutter speed down and that burst rate will drop as well. The size of the image file also dictates how fast you can burst in frames per second. You are shooting RAW and no doubt jpg's so the camera is doing double duty with some pretty impressive files size. If you want speed shoot jpg's and set your camera correctly for white balance, shoot for the end use. If you are looking for speed you aren't shooting portraits or landscapes where you have time to calculate your shot so the need for a BIG print isn't necessary so drop your image quality.
The Rebel's processor is very impressive and it has a large buffer where it writes the file as you are shooting so in fact the camera is writing to the buffer at the same time it's writing to the memory card. That's why when you stop shooting it takes several seconds for the camera to catch up.
If you are looking for speed keep your shutter speed up, reduce the image file size, shoot jpg, class 6 works nice (I use this type) I have only one class 8.
On a personal note the Canon Digital Rebel has put so much power and performance in the hands of entry level photographers and they are using that power to come up with some darn nice photography and in the right hands it's putting the hurt to some long time pro shooters.
