How many continuous JPEG shots can the GH1 take using the latest firmware?
May 14, 2010

Hi, I'm looking for a little help benchmarking the GH1. I've seen the reviews on DPR, IR and other sites, but they were all created using old firmware.

So I went to the camera store today to test out the GH1's JPEG and RAW buffer sizes. Buffer size seems to be 4 RAW frames or 4 RAW+JPEG frames. The buffer size for JPEG seemed to vary depending on what the subject was. The GH1 seemed to get between 9-15 JPEG shots in before slowing down. All of these tests were performed on a firmware 1.1 camera by doing a factory reset and then shooting in high speed mode.

Anyway, I'm wondering if any of you GH1 owners are capable of longer JPEG or RAW sequences. Please mention which SD card and firmware version you're using if possible.

Also, another weird thing is that the G1 seemed to be capable of slightly longer JPEG sequences, which is odd. Perhaps the GH1's bigger sensor slows it down slightly?
