Speed and Timing
The TS4 features both full resolution and reduced resolution burst modes, both of which are very useful in practice. We clocked the full resolution version at 3.74 frames per second, however it maxes out at 6 continuous shots before the buffer fills up. The reduced resolution version, less useful in our opinion due to the megapixel handicap, fires at almost 7.5 frames per second, but maxes out at 48 shots.
Another one of the few new features found in the TS4 is an interval timer, used for performing time lapse photography. We're on board with this, and can imagine capturing some amazing sunsets and such while off exploring the outdoors. The controls for this system are fairly detailed too.
Traditional self-timer options are less robust, with only two options: 10 second and 2 second.
