3 Shot Pano

Play

the 3-5 shot panorama is a really cool way to capture a scene. it’s not really a pano but think of it as a S-U-P-E-R W-I-D-E picture as you aren’t doing a full 360. you can take these with any camera. it doesn’t have to be expensive. and you don’t have to have a super wide lens. in fact you may want to shoot you pano using a more zoomed lens instead of the widest setting.

Continuous

Play

Continuous is a mode on your camera that takes picture after picture for as long as you hold down the shutter. the frame rate of the shots depends on the camera. the Canon shoots about 4 FPS, Fuji is .3 seconds per frame, Nikon has a mode called 16 (which turns the flash off automatically, there is also has a mode that does 1.5 FPS and the Sony have different rates that depend on the camera. there are several Casio cameras that have super fast frame rates like up to 1000 frames per second!

so what is Continuous mode good for? it turns out there are lots of things that you can shoot. it’s a great way to get perfect candids. group shots are always a problem. don’t forget squirming kids and pets. you get that winning moment for sports photos. in a nut shell Continuous mode is good for anything that moves.
