This is what I am attempting to do.I am a shotgun coach and am wanting a camera that takes maybe 10 frames per second and plays back in a frame by frame scenario,so I can show the kids what they are doing.If for instance I tell them they are lifting their head off the stock they say no way this will reinforce what is being said.The recording time would not have to be for more than two seconds.

Many of the Sony cameras have a super burst mode, which takes a large burst (at least 16 images I think) over several seconds, and diplays them sequentially as one image.

You're probably better of with a digital videocamera, much easier to work with, and you could take more shots at a time, to compare, and no problems with being too slow or too fast.

Just about any photo program cansave as aGIF. Even "Paint" can do it.

If you are talking about "animated GIF" I use Ulead's GIF animator 5

Once you have saved the jpegs out as gifs (practically any modern free graphics program can do this) you could use something as ancientas the Microsoft Gif Animator (freely available google it) , to create the actual animated gif composed of the individual gifs and set the timings for each frame and set the number of times the gif actually loops .

http://teachertech.rice.edu/Materials/gifanim.html

I see on ebay at the moment you can buy a copy of Paint shop pro 7.4 which comes with animation shop, for $10.99 , so that would be a cheap solution to not only a good photo editor but a good gif editor as well.


The Gimp (freeware) can use layers andyou could paste each of the jpegs in as a new layer andanimate them before saving as a gif , thoughThe Gimp is very difficult to learn.


Also see if Drawplus 4 or Photoplus 6 (freeware, http://www.freeserifsoftware.com/) would be useful to you , both appear to be able to handle creating animations.
