about timing, but you can increase your chances of getting that special shot by selecting continuous mode and taking a sequence of images one after the other.
You can use continuous mode when shooting static subjects, but it’s best to stick to single shot drive mode; in continuous mode it’s very easy to leave your finger on the shutter and fire off a burst of identical images unnecessarily, using up both time and space on your memory card. in short bursts, normally of around three to five images, at the height of the action. This will help prevent you simply taking loads of unnecessary images, and also keep the camera’s image buffer as clear as possible, so it’s always ready to capture a shot. Many Nikon SLRs allow you to set custom frame rates, but this isn’t necessary for most situations. They might help you to keep shooting for longer without filling the image buffer, but you will normally want the fastest frame rate possible to ensure that you can capture the height of the action. In general, it’s far better to shoot in short bursts than to lower the frame rate.
