View Full Version : Timing

September 17, 2003, 03:17:20

I am testing the snap time of my camera: DFW-SX900 with the use of the sample program MembufferCollection. It captures 24-bit color image.

I found that the snap time for 5 photos is about 1.6 sec and 100 photos is about 160 sec.

( I only count the time when the pliot light of the camera is orange, and does not include the time for allocating memory)

I expect the time increases with number of photos linearly.

However the experiment result is different.

I wonder if I did something wrong or the camera is abnormal

Thank you

You should remark, that starting and stopping the camera needs some time. How did you insert the timing into the source code, to get exact times?
