This shows it’s shooting a solid 10fps

It should be generated by quartz crystal. Isn't it? How come it is not really accurate for you?

Not really no, a web stopwatch is a piece of software, not a quartz crystal. Again, I'm not trying to call you a liar. It would be cool if you could post images 1 through 11? Or even the first and last in a burst.

You're shooting raw, are you shooting 14bit uncompressed?

There are 1st and 11th images from the sequence:



Yes, I shoot 14 bit RAW, don't remember compressed or uncompressed though. It is too late now to verify.

From these two images, you are showing it’s shooting at a frame rate of 10 fps.  That 11th image is just measuring the end of the 10th frame in the burst.

If you aren’t sure on that, consider a two frame burst.  The gap between those two frames (probably about 0.1s) shows the cycle time for one frame and not the two you are using to measure the gap.  Same thing goes when you extend the burst to get an average across 10 frames; you need 11 to measure it!
