[EDIT, auto focus off and LCD with preview on] Result using a Extreme III SDHC 4GB card and hammering the trigger for about a minute aiming at my phones timer and you get the above result. Not sure if this a correct scientific way to approach this but I’m pretty sure you understand how this works.. 23 frames including the one over the edge but that’s fair coz I could feel that I didn’t get them as fast as humanly possible. Or maybe I did.
This is using RAW.
Considering the huge amount of information from three layers with 4.6MP x3, then this is quite impressive! – And this has NOTHING to do with shutter lag. Shutter lag is when you press the trigger to the moment the picture is being taken. And that time using manual focus is more or less instant. Very very short “real” shutter lag. The above info has to do with the SECOND shot taken after the first. So NO shutter lag, but that was true with the DP1 as well.
Also don’t forget you can still take three continues RAW within one second! Very useful!
