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!
