Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting in Continuous (burst) mode, part of Learning the Canon 6D.
…Out of the box, your camera shoots a single photo with each push of…the shutter release button.…However, there are some situations where it could be useful to…shoot several photos in rapid fire succession.…For example, to catch the action of an athlete, or…perhaps the perfect expression of a laughing child.…Remember, card space is pretty cheap so cover your bases and get a few extra…shots in by using what's often called burst mode, or continuous shooting mode.…In continuous mode, your camera captures a continuous stream of photos.…The camera stores the shots in a special area of the memory called a buffer.…
Now, when this buffer gets full,…the camera has to transfer the photos to your memory card.…It's going to essentially stop shooting, until there is room in the buffer again.…Now, if you're using a fast memory card, this can really let you…shoot longer in continuous mode, as it will transfer the files quicker.…With continuous shooting mode, you can record about four and…a half frames per second on your camera.…
