I'm not sure what it is called these days. Back in the film era, you had to mount a motor drive to get several frames per second. Anyway, now I have a modern camera and for the first time in my life I have the ability to mash the shutter and let the camera rip 5 fps or so, but is it good?
When I look at the series I get using that technique, I find I sometimes miss the shot that would have made it great. I'll get the action right before the "play" or right after but the peak moment often slips between frames.
Then I look at some sports photographers web pages (where they are selling pics cheap) and I find that they'll post every one of the pics from a burst series, even though most are not worth much.
Because of this, I'm starting to think that relying on the camera to click lots of frames is a lazy approach. Am I wrong?
