[Question] What is the Speed Cont?

Speed Cont allows you to record 120 consecutive images in approximately one second (Speed Cont (High)) or approximately 2 seconds (Speed Cont (Low)) from the moment that the shutter release button is pressed. The consecutively shot still images are grouped together as a set and are recorded as one MP file*1.
