When using the M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 Pro

Maximum sequential shooting speed may be affected by several factors including lens used, brightness, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO setting.

When ISO is 8000 or above, 30 fps becomes the maximum sequential shooting speed. The actual shooting speed may become slower than the set shooting speed by a few frames per second. When using ISO Bracketing, performance will be affected at ISO 2000 or above.
