I don't think they are taking any exposers in the video, just getting a focus lock.

<doh!> well that's pretty pointless isn't it ?? What's the point of making AF 100ms faster when the inter-shot time is 2000ms?? Fingers crossed that the firmware not only improves AF speed marginally, but also allows the camera to walk and chew gum at the same time (it appears it can't write to SD while shooting, something my 20D could do 8 years ago).

Really? I can't imagine that's true... If it is, I don't get it, that is an absolutely basic function of most decent digital cameras these days.

Well..you'd think so. Do you have an EOS-M? If so can yours take more than 1 shot every couple of seconds (in single-shot mode) ?

FWIW here's the Ken Rockwell review, where he mentions what I believe to be the same stall while writing to SD that I'm seeing : http://kenrockwell.com​/canon/eos-m/m.htm (external link)

Sorry, I don't. It just sounded so unbelievable. That really sucks. :(

Ok, this is promising. If you have the time, let's figure out the difference between mine and yours on setup..

First, can you let me know roughly how many shots per second you can take in single-shot mode with your EOS-M ?

I'll see if I can take some video of mine in action and post on YouTube for comparison.

Tested mine tonight with my fastest SD card (95mb/s write speed). It takes a good 1.5 to 2 seconds between shots unless it's in continuous mode. In continuous mode I get 4 shots before it chokes with my slower 30 mb/s card and about 7 shots with the 95 mb/s card. With the fast card it continues at about one shot per second after the buffer is full. With the slow card it stops and won't shoot again for several seconds.

But again, in single shot mode, it takes a shot, goes blank for a second, then comes back and refocuses before shooting again. 1.5 to 2 seconds between captures. The faster AF of the new firmware may shave off some of this time.

Ok thanks. This is 100% the same as what I see with my EOS-M. Any ideas why botw is not seeing the same behavior?? Perhaps he/she has the camera in continuous shooting mode?

Could be. I see no settings that would shorten the time, except maybe saving to medium or small JPEG instead of raw.

Woot, someone please report back whether AF speed is improved significantly after the update....as I'm on the fence of purchasing the M ;)
