The Benefit of Using the Burst Mode On Your Digital Camera


I have a little point and shoot camera.  I really want to get a nice digital camera for taking professional looking portraits of my kids.  My issue being that my point and shoot takes forever to find the focus before taking the shot.  So the moment is gone before the camera takes the picture.

But I recently discovered the burst mode on my little point and shoot!  This has added a new excitement for this tiny camera. Directly outside the back door, by the roof, a couple of birds have been making a nest.  The daddy bird would fly back and forth, over and over again, and I thought it would be cool to get a close up picture of the bird, mid-flight.  In tinkering with the camera, I discovered the glorious burst mode.  Here’s the photo I got of the bird:

And then I got the idea to turn it on my children!  Greatest idea ever!  Using the burst mode allowed me to capture the moment, the essence of Noble, that these point and shoots would otherwise not be able to get – because of all that auto-focussissizing!
