I will always be honest in my tests - whether results are great, or not.

In this case - No - I did not find the claimed results panned out.

I got between 5-25% more shots depending on the settings used - but the claimed '15 seconds shooting at 20fps RAW+JPEG'... I simply didn't get those results - it's roughly half that. And tbh it is using the lowest quality settings which I would NOT recommend!

Having said all that, I tend to shoot at 12-15 FPS and in those settings - it goes and goes. If shooting just RAW it will shoot forever at 12-15 FPS with the right cards.
