    Solution

    When the Shutter Mode is Set to [ Mechanical ] or [ Elec. 1st-curtain]
    • When using RF lenses or some compatible EF lenses, the continuous shooting speed of [ ](High-speed continuous shooting+) and [ ](High-speed continuous shooting) changes in up to three stages as in the table below in response to factors, such as battery type/remaining capacity, use of a battery grip/wireless file transmitter, number of battery packs used, use of a DC coupler/USB power adaptor, lens used, temperature, whether the built-in Wi-Fi is ON or OFF, etc.

    * The maximum burst during continuous shooting may be slower depending on the shutter speed, aperture, use of flash, flicker reduction, subject conditions, brightness (shooting in a dark environment), etc.

    • The conditions under which the continuous shooting speed is approximately 12 shots per second in [ ] (High-speed continuous shooting+) are as follows.

    Battery Grip BG-R10 (sold separately) Power SourceTemperatureWi-Fi SettingsRemaining Battery Capacity Lens Used
    OFFBattery Pack LP-E6NHRoom temperature (+23℃)OFFApprox. 60% or higherWhen RF lenses or certain EF lenses are used*
    DC coupler DR-E6 (sold separately)0℃ or higher-
    ONLP-E6NH (2 pcs.)Room temperature (+23℃)Both battery packs at approx. 60% or higher

    *For details on the EF lenses, see "EF Lenses Supporting 12 Shots/Sec. Continuous Shooting".

    • Even if the remaining battery capacity is lower than what is listed in the table above, depending on the level of battery recharge performance and shooting conditions, a maximum burst of approx. 12 shots per second may still be possible.
    • When using Battery Pack LP-E6N, with the battery at near full capacity and used at room temperature (+23℃), a maximum burst of approx. 12 shots per second is possible. (The amount of remaining battery capacity to allow a maximum burst of approx. 12 shots per second depends on the level of battery recharge performance and shooting conditions.)

    IMPORTANT
    • Continuous shooting speed may become slower when using battery packs with weaker recharge performance.
    • Under the following conditions, continuous shooting of approx. 12 shots per second cannot be performed.
    - Wi-Fi connection: ON
    - One Battery Pack LP-E6NH is used when the Battery Grip BG-R10 (sold separately) is in use
    - Battery Pack LP-E6 is used
    - Wireless File Transmitter WFT-R10 (sold separately) is used
    - USB Power Adaptor PD-E1 (sold separately) is used
    • During Servo AF, depending on subject conditions or the lens used, the continuous shooting speed may be slower.
    • With [ : Anti-flicker shoot.] set to [Enable], the continuous shooting speed may be slower when shooting under flickering light. In addition, the continuous shooting interval may become irregular and the release time lag may become longer.
    • When internal memory becomes full during continuous shooting, the continuous shooting speed may drop off because shooting will be temporarily disabled.

    When the Shutter Mode is set to [Electronic]
    During continuous shooting, if the following conditions are satisfied, high-speed continuous shooting (maximum burst of 20 shots per sec.) is performed.

    • The lens is set to maximum aperture except for when using an EF-S lens*.
    *For details on the lenses, see "List of lenses that the continuous shooting speed of max. approx. 20 fps less likely to decrease".

    • The continuous shooting speed may change in response to the shutter speed, aperture, aperture status during continuous shooting, subject conditions, brightness (shooting in a dark environment, etc.), type of lens, etc.

    YES. It solved my issue

    It covered my problem, but the solution still didn't work for me

    The information on the page is hard to understand

    It has nothing to do with my issue
