I have a Canon 550D and when I look through my view-finder to take photographs, it displays all the current settings inside the view-finder itself like aperture value, shutter speed, ISO etc.
However, it also displays a number on the far right corner. That number is 9. It always is 9 and I don't know what that signifies. Any clue?
One more thing, sometimes that number also has a dot besides it when the camera isn't focused properly on the subject.
That is how many photos the camera can 'burst'. Changing the output file type (RAW, JPEG, RAW+JPEG) can affect this number. The dot is focus confirmation, it shows when AF has locked onto something.
