Re: Successfully made my M6 II uses electronic shutter in 7 fps continuous mode

We know that an eShutter burst mode is technically possible because it’s used in Focus Bracketing Mode, which is very fast. And a reduced size image is recorded in RAW Burst Mode, which is also very fast. I don’t think the problem is sensor readout speed or the buffer or write speed either. The M6ii should give us close to a 30 frame eShutter burst (full size RAW files). And many more jpegs are of course possible.

What would be really nice is a way to select the frames per second, so that it’s not all or nothing. 20 fps works well with my beefier R5, but with the M6ii you’re only talking about a 1 1/2 second burst at 20 fps. For some things that’s fine, but for many subjects I’d love something like a 7 fps option (which my preferred rate using mShutter).

I suspect (and you have likely proven, if your hack is workable) that it’s all technically possible, but it’s Canon that is holding back these more advanced features. Maybe we’ll see something in a future release?
