On a trip I use a prime 35mm equivalent as the only lens I use (m.Zuiko 17mm/1.8). Typical time per shot, 3 seconds. Typical shots per day 100. In other words a total of 300 seconds/day = 5 minutes taking photos. So if my companion can't wait 5 min in an entire day, he/she has a problem. Sometimes if you take the time to point out what you see that he/she doesn't, not only will he/she appreciate more the surrounding environment, he/she might not even notice that you actually took a shot. As you are talking, visualise your shot, and then a quick framing, click, done, don't linger, know your gear, don't waste precious time.

Three seconds per shot is pretty quick. Sounds like you are machine gun shooting on the go rather than stopping and composing shots. Impressive. You must get some very good shots.

I'm guessing he'd get better shots if he took 5 to 10 seconds per shot than 3 seconds.
