It shoots about 3 fps... I was looking at this camera, a Rebel XS, and the Pentax K-x....I went with the K-x....and LOVE it. Takes amazing photos. Tons of adjustable settings. Internal IS. Plus shoots about 4.3 fps. The only negative (to others not me) is no AF points in viewfinder. All in all a great camera. Plus you can be different instead of humping around a Canon/Nikon like everybody else.
