k7 only takes 4 continuous shots & then pauses before the fifth one

doing exposure bracketing photography and set number of pictures to 5 with ev steps of 1. press shutter release and 4 shots fire off real quick but then there is a 1 to 2 secound pause befor the 5th shot fires. shooting in dng raw. i thought the specifications said that 14 continous shots could be fired. what am i doing wrong here? tia

Yes. With these options enabled, each image stays 3-4 seconds in the buffer instead of being written to the card immediately. This takes up a lot more buffer space, and means fewer shots can be taken before slowing down.

And if the light is low, your overexposures in the set of 5 are going to take a much longer time than in bright lighting.
