The Canon EOS 7D was Canon's first high end professional camera with an APS-C crop sensor.

Frames per second are slowing down... Repair?

I have a Canon 7D that I use primarily for sports photography, so the multiple frames per second feature has been used a LOT. I have noticed that it is skipping or slowing down. Where one press of the shutter used to result in 7 shots in a row, now there is a break and they are spaced differently. I don't think I have changed an internal setting to get this result (although I will check).

Is there a way to repair that particular feature with good result? I photograph horses, dogs, humans in sport, so often track and take multiple images.

hello MFA,

The fault can be occur due to bad memory module. Change the memory (Flash) card and shoot. it should work.

Note that the 7D will slow down considerably in bad lighting situations! This is independent of your shutter speed and aperture settings! To check, use with lens cap on: fps goes down to approx. 3/s. Point at a lamp or use in daylight: fps goes back to 7/s.
