Continuous Shooting

Casio Exilim EX-Z150

Canon PowerShot SD960 IS

Note: Continuous shooting framerates are based on the camera's fastest full-resolution JPEG continuous shooting mode, using the fastest media type available (300x CF, SDHC, etc.), as tested in our studio. "Frames" notes the number of captures recorded per burst before the camera stops/slows to clear the buffer.

Auto White Balance, 3200K incandescent light.

FYI, I didn't include any processing/color modes samples because the processing presets (while interesting) all force you into AWB, which caused problems with our studio hot lights (obviously, per above).
