Raw notes… will be cleaned up and made purty with more details, soon.
X3: up to 30 seconds between taking photos via app, and more timing notes.
Some notes on timing, for those who want to compare against your existing camera. This is with the current firmware that the camera will install when you activate it (v1.0.00). Recommended Sandisk Extreme 32GB card.
App (on iPhone 13 Pro):
360 Photo, 72MP, 2:1 – there is nearly 4-5 second delay between the time you press the on screen button and the time the X3 clicks. It takes a total of about 15 seconds before the UI updates and you can take the next photo.
360 Photo, 18MP, 2:1 – 4-5 delay, and a total of about 9 seconds.
360 HDR Photo – 3-4, then about 13 seconds total.
150 Photo, 36MP, 16:9 – 3-4, about 11 seconds total.
150 Photo, 9MP, 16:9 – 3-4, about 8 seconds total.
I did have one instance where it took almost 30 seconds to be ready for the next shot.
Using the button on the camera is almost instant (within a second) and ready for the next photo in about 6-7 seconds total.
In 360 Photo mode, 72MP, pressing the button on the camera makes the click sound between 2-3 seconds later, and it takes a total of 14 seconds before the screen comes back on for the next photo.
In 360 Photo mode, 18MBP, it takes about a second to take the picture, and a total of about 5-6 before you can take the next shot.
In 360 HDR Photo mode, 18MP, it takes about a second to take the picture, and a total of 9-10 seconds before you can take the next shot.
Some of this feels like the timer is on, which isn’t being shown in the app or on the camera. earlier, I used the Quick button and had selected that mode. It seems it may be remembering settings that have since been turned off.
More to come…
