Continuous shooting speed of Q

Recommended Posts

Continuous shooting speed of my Q seems much below 10 frames/second. I changed to JPEGS and didn’t detect a significance difference. Anyone else notice this?

A firing rate for a digital camera is similar to how they describe the firing rate of a machine gun. The German MG34S has a firing rate of 1700 rounds per minute, but you’d never be able to fire those 1700 rounds. The barrel would melt down after 150 rounds. 

If the Q had a bigger buffer and faster processor, it might be able to shoot 10 frames in a second. Sadly, it can’t!

like on the machingun, always pull the trigger short ☺️

Hard to believe that Leica would provide incorrect real world capability of the Q- vis a vis- max firing rate of 10 frames per second. Is there not some scenario that speed is attainable with its current specifications?

Q: If I set the continuous to 10/sec. It makes about 10 pics in a small second then stops, and then it takes awhile to write them to the card.

I just tried something to test shooting speed. Using JPEG, manual setting, I can then get about 10 frames/sec and then have to wait for buffer to clear. If I switch to DNG it fires 5-6 times rapidly but  then pauses to clear the buffer.  I guess u can get at least 10  frames/second for at least a 1 second period only by shooting JPEGs and so I will keep that in mind if I require that shooting speed

6 rapid shots in continuous mode is not normal even for DNG.. You should expect 10-13 shots depending on the context before the camera pauses for the buffer to clean. What SD card are you using?

I just retested my Q. Using manual focus and full manual control—with JPEG exceeded 10/sec and with DNG, at least 10/sec—all before stopping for buffer etc. I use a Sandisc Extreme Pro 95 MB/sec, 32 gig capacity. 

  When I previously tested, I was not in full manual control and that may have made the difference.

I must add: I have DNG+JPG set: about 10 in a second then stops and writes the buffer onto: Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MB/sec 32GB size.
