Canon R7 real-life continuous shooting fps?
1

Question to R7 owners: The Canon R7 is specificied with a maximum of 30fps in continuous shooting, with a maximum of +/- 90 frames in CRaw. But does the camera drop to lower fps at shutter speeds in the range of 1/60-1/500?

My experience with other high-speed cameras - such as the Sony A9 - is that the advertised continuous fps values exist more in theory than in practice, because shutter speed needs to be added to the overall timing. If this should also be the case with the R7, it would mean that at 1/60 shutter speed, the actual frame rate would drop from 30fps to 20fps.(*)

But I am not sure whether the R7 really has the same behavior.

Are there users of the camera here who know more?

(*) Twenty times 1/60 second amount to an additional 1/3 second, leaving only 2/3rds of the theoretical maximum of 30 fps. Or, in other words: the equation is 1/(1/60+1/30)=20. Of course, that frame rate would increase with shorter shutter speeds. For example, at 1/500, it would be 1/(1/500+1/30)=28.3.
