A to Z Challenge: Q is for Quick – it’s Burst Mode
Welcome to today’s post for the great Blogging A to Z Challenge!
Today is Q is for Quick – it’s Burst Mode.
What can I say? Q is always hard, so I make it up as I go. And since Burst Mode is quick, well there you have it!
Use Burst Mode when you’re taking pictures of something that’s moving. A sporting event, a bird, whatever. Or something that can’t sit still, like kitties. (http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/3798/shooting-burst-mode/)
Burst Mode is a setting you have to find on your camera, and then watch out. Apparently on my Canon it’s a setting called “continuous shooting”.
So, I cheated a little. I tried out some continuous shooting on a video of a hummingbird. I can see how you could easily get carried away with this, run out of memory, and then have to look at and potentially edit hundreds of pictures. I think this is a mode to carefully consider before using!

Yep. And you can change how many frames/second you want released as well, likely. I use Nikon so not familiar with your settings. I can set mine to 3, 6,etc frames/ second. When that shutter is released, boom. There it goes. Great shot of the humming bird. 😃
Something I need to experiment with for sure. As for the humming bird, I can take no credit for that, aside from using burst mode on a YouTube video. I will have to take some time to re-fill our feeders and then just sit in wait out on our deck!! 🙂
Love playing around with the settings. But when I get the result I want, I forget what setting I used sometimes. 😃
I tried quick burst mode photos once, but now I want to explore this more. Wonderful captures of the little hummingbird.
Me too – although next time I’ll take pictures of a real hummingbird, and not a video of one 🙂
Burst mode can be very useful for birds and butterflies but yes. the fear of editing looms large. Glad to be here from the A to Z Challenge 🙂
I’ll have to plan for it, and use it wisely!
here is to the problems with Q!
For me it is always Q and Y that I have to think really hard… 😉
Great job on your Q though! 😀
And sometimes X, and Z… 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
Goodness, yes I can see how someone (okay, me!) could get carried away with burst mode! 🙂
