Continuous shooting on HX300
7 months ago

Hi all,

How many fps can you get continuously from the HX300.

I know that the tech specs say in burst mode it is 10fps, but that is also limited to 10 shots and then some waiting time as it transfers to disk, before you can shoot again.

My two children fidget a lot so I want to keep my finger on the shutter and have it continuously take photos. I'm sure that even 2fps would be okay if I could keep it going for as long as I wanted rather than the limit of just 10 shots. An initial single auto-focus and fixed for all subsequent shots is fine for this purpose.

Would someone be kind enough to actually test this on their HX300 for me please?

From what I've read putting in a higher speed SD card makes no difference (but it that true with a 95MBps card?)

I understand the Canon SX50 HS *does* keep going at around 2fps but the Sony seems to outclass it in so many other ways.

Thanks for any help you may give.
