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.

Burst mode boosts your chances of get­ting sharp shots when shoot­ing fast-mov­ing sub­jects
