Re: Sony A7RII Buffer speed shooting raw, Single shot, once per second.. can't keep up??

So I just tested on fw 3.3

compressed RAW 30 shots in 30 seconds and 20 seconds to clear buffer.No lock up

Uncompressed RAW 12 shots in 12 secs then about a shot every 2-3 seconds. about 40 seconds to clear buffer

Uncompressed RAW + low rez jpeg 11 shots in 11 secs then about a shot every 2-3 seconds. about 40 seconds to clear buffer

compressed RAW low speed continuous 25 shots till lock up

compressed RAW high speed 23 until lock up

Question why do you really need to shoot uncompressed? I would only do this in some critical landscape work where I would want to max out the DR but to be honest the benefits are really minor
