Images speed & capacity

How many and how fast you can take images with this camera in continous or consecutive mode or something? I know that even the "S" have some internal memory doesn't support such a function and you're able to make image each 3 or 4 sec depends on image resolution. This seems quite slow to me if for example I want to make 360° panoramatic photos. I'm not able to test it directly because there is not any shop which already have on the counter. Don't know what is the difference because "S" can handle just 30 sec of movie but 33WR can make movie limited with size of SD card?

You can read all about continuous shooting in the manual, here: http://www.fixya.com/BrowseManual.aspx?mnlid=2575&prdid=153915&__PAGED_=58

Contunues shooting

You put the camera into one of the Continuous modes by holding the Release Mode button (to the right of the LCD control panel on the top of the camera, marked with a set of overlapping rectangles) and turning the command dial on the back. The two choices are Continuous Low and Continous High (marked with the overlapping rectangles and the letter "L" or "H"). Frame and shoot as normal.

In continous mode the camera will take pictures as long as your finger remains on the shutter release button or until the buffer fills up. In Continous High the camera will take as many as 4.5 pictures a second. Custom Setting #d6 controls how fast Continous Low shoots.

Bear in mind that the speeds mentioned are only maximums. If your shutter speed is set to half a second, you're obviously not going to take four pictures in one second.

This is all in the manual, under "Release Mode".

Shutter speed won't go over 5 frames a sec. on d300

Even if your camera is rated at shooting more than five continuous frames at a time, those are stored in a memory buffer in the camera, when the buffer is full the camera writes the images to your flash memory card. How fast the memory card can accept the data will determine who fast space is made available in the buffer for a sixth or seventh shot.

The main limitation on how many images can be shot in continuous mode is based on the storage capacity of the memory buffer and also how fast images can be written to your inserted memory card.

So, the higher the resolution the image the more space it takes in the memory buffer. Should you shoot in a smaller resolution you should be able to shoot more frames continuously. However, there are a few variables involved. If the Camera is preset at the factory to not store any more than five images no matter what the resolution than there is no way around this encumbered feature. And, or the speed at which the memory card you use can accept written data will also decide how fast the buffer is cleared for new data.

The highest speed flash memory conforms with Version 6 and has a write speed of 188x.

So, the things to double check is if a limitation is built into your camera of five images and no more than five no matter what the resolution. This is not uncommon. The second is the speed at which data can be cleared from the buffer and written to the memory card, less common but a newer standard now that faster flash memory cards are becoming available.

Now, all that being said, There are 'firmware' updates released from time to time that make adjustments to camera features than can change these variables

Most Nikons use Compact Flash so see if you can get a high speed card that is version 6 compliant. But, first, check the sony support site for your camera and see if 5 is the limit no matter what. And if so, see if there is a firmware update under downloads at the support site that increases the number of shots that can be stored in buffer while being written to the flash memory card.

I have a client wtih a D60 who when she switched over to 133x Compact Flash was able to shoot more frames faster in continuous mode.

Please don't hesitate to use the comment text box below for any further assistance, such as the support page at Sony for your camera if you don't have in in yoru manual. Or any information you may need regarding shooting in high speed mode and what format to use. Most Pros that consult with me are using JPEG uncompressed. If you have questions please provide more detail on how you have your camera setup and under what conditions you are shooting in when attempting to capture more frames per continuous mode shotting.
