Default Ask : Continuous timer

Hi, im a new owner or hs20.
i want to ask is there any 'continuous timer' feature on fujifilm ?

i mean, when we go to timer mode, it usually take 1 shoot only (in 2s,10s, etc) right ?

is there any setting to make it take more than 1 shoot ?
i.e : 5 shots with 10s delay for each shot....

thanks before

G'day joe

As I understand things - while you can set burst and also an exposure time [say 4secs] the camera will continue taking photos ... but with no delay between images

thanks for the answer.
then, i assume it would be best to be used for fast moving object is it ?
then choosing the best picture among the whole bunch of pics that were taken in those 4 secs time frame.

G'day joe

Burst is a feature on most cameras these days - where after it is set, the camera will take a 'collection' of images. Some cameras will do 3 images then stop, others will do 10 and then stop, some will go on forever till the memory card is full

The burst option is a small icon like 3 sheets of paper

My FZ30 has a burst option for continuous burst as "" ~ maybe your camera has one like it too

So when I activate this option for after dark, long exposure stuff, I will set the camera to "M" mode & shutter speed at (say) 10seconds, Aperture at f5,6, then ISO-400 or 800, then continuous burst - and go away and leave it for an hour or so

So ... if your camera has "burst to infinity" mode, your are in luck, as fewer & fewer superzooms have is these days [in the useless race to squashing in more pixels, useful things like this are being deleted] ... if you have this mode, come back again & I'll give you some more info & tips on using this mode

Regards, Phil
