Continuous low and continuous high modes, sometimes called burst modes, record a series of images as long as the shutter is held down.
|Lean back for balance and down we go.|
|Eyes up looking to the jump.|
|Lining up her horse for the jump.|
|Calm and relaxed.|
|Up and over with ease.|
|Phew! Job well done.|
*Cross-country is an endurance test of both horse and rider and may also be known as hunter trials. The object of cross-country is to prove the speed, endurance and jumping ability of a well trained cross-country horse. The rider must demonstrate knowledge of riding pace and the best use of his or her horse on the cross-country field.
Personally, I love continuous mode settings and use them often. I primarily use these settings at horse shows and with horse owners during their practice who want to check their riding skills and riding form prior to a show. My clients show the series of photos to their riding instructors. This gives my client and their instructor a good idea of what skill-set needs correction.
Single frame, the camera default, captures one frame each time you press the shutter button down completely. Continuous low and high modes have maximum frames per second and record a series of images as long as the shutter is held down. The frames per second vary per type of camera and between low and high modes.
Both my DSLR and my Point and Shoot cameras have continuous low and continuous high mode settings. Check your camera's manual to see if your camera offers these. You'll love them!
