ASI1600MC low (?) FPS was created by maxthebuilder

Hello,
Just acquired an ASI1600MC.
Getting 1 fps when streaming Raw 8bit with bandwidth 40, 2 fps Raw 8bit with bandwidth 80, 0.5 fps Raw 16bit with bandwidth 40.
I am new to this camera. Is this low or something to be expected?
ASI120MC-S is 12 times faster.
Thanks!

Yes, tried - binning didn't affect FPS. Yes, ASI120 - around 12 FPS.
Thanks!

ASI1600 is 16 megapixel camera, ASI120 is 1megapixel so that probably explains most of it and approaches limits of USB2 in RPI3. Binning is probably software based like CMOS cameras usually have so it doesn't help as the driver still transfers full frames over USB. Subframing should help to get decent frame rates with planets and so on.

Yes. Checked on a Windows PC - same fps when connected to USB 2 port.
10 fps when connected to USB 3.
So, 0.5-2 fps is normal for this camera connected to RPI.

I am OK with this - don't need higher fps. Was just wondering...
Thanks!
