Default High-speed burst shots

I got these guys whilst experimenting with the high-speed burst on the HS-10. I had to slow it down(!) to 5fps (it's capable of 10fps). It shoots 7 frames and let's you take your choice. I can't say as I'm crazy about it. I think I'd much prefer the continuous shooting method as is on the Oly I had but it sure works. It will just take a little getting-used-to. These are pretty much straight from the camera.

Nice set of pics. Were you using a tripod?

Also, were you using the Best Shot setting or was it the Top 7 setting?

Thanks

Thanks!

I was using a tripod and Best Shot. I'm still playing around with stuff. BTW, these are all shot through double-pane glass windows.

Did you PP or were these OOC?

Very impressive for shooting through double-pane glass windows.

I used one-increment USM in DigiKam. Other than that, OOC.

Have you played around with the sports mode yet and seen how its speed works compared to the high burst mode?

I'm not too into the "Scenes"-type shooting. A bit too confining. I may have to play with them to see what advantages they offer.

Doesn't the Sports Mode boost the ISO to get higher shutter speed. It may result in more noisy images.

That's what I mean. Using the scenes, you lose control of the camera. It tells YOU what to do instead of YOU tell IT. Might serve some purpose down the line. I'll have to play with 'em.

Thanks for the reply. When I had a Fuji S9100 I used to use the Sports Mode when I need to shoot faster shot to shot times and it worked well for me. Have not had a chance to play with it on the HS10 yet.
