Camera Constraints - Testing to failure

Ground synthing development is going to require lots of pictures, and given a team of volunteers it is going to require coordinating picture-taking to an unprecedented degree.  In order to plan our workflow, we need to know how long the cameras can remain in continuous shooting mode.  In order to figure this out, I decided to run the two primary models of camera we are currently using, the Canon SD4000 IS and the Casio Exilim EX-FS10, in continuous mode until they failed.

Both cameras were set to ISO 200, maximum resolution, fine compression JPEG.

Here are the results:

 

Canon SD4000 IS

  • *6186 photos, 12.0 gigabytes
  • *155 photos per minute
  • *Battery fails at 40 minutes shooting time, 16GB card has enough space for 48 minutes shooting time

 

Casio Exilim EX-FS10

  • *5937 photos, 9.8 gigabytes
  • *84 photos per minute
  • *Battery fails at 71 minutes shooting time, 16GB card has enough space for 106 minutes shooting time
