It’s worth noting a few things to keep in mind when using burst mode in photography:
2. Most cameras have a limit to how many shots they will allow you to take in this mode. The number of shots allowed will depend upon numerous factors including the format you’re shooting in (ie RAW files are bigger and you can’t shoot as many in a row) and the size of images you’re shooting.
3. Some cameras have a predetermined number of shots that they will take in ‘burst mode’. i.e it might take a sequence of 5 shots instead of just shooting until you release the shutter.
4. The more shots you take the quicker you’ll run out of batteries and the faster you’ll fill your memory card – so shooting all day in continuous mode will mean you will need backups.
5. When shooting a moving image you might need to think about your focussing strategy. Some DSLRs have a continuous focussing feature to help with this but in simpler cameras you might find that the focussing just cant keep up.
6. It can take a bit of practice to use continuous shooting mode in order to get the right number of shots. Some cameras are more sensitive than others when it comes to their shutter release and in some cases it’s difficult to take just a single shot.
