I haven't tried those yet as I didn't buy it for that. However, maybe someone here has done that and will post.

The following shots were taken at 4fps. I believe theyre 3 megapixel.





















Please post when youve seen these as they take a lot of room and Im sure no one wants so much space taken up.

Hey... cool shots. Came out well too. They loaded real good for me, but I'm on Comcast cable too.

Thanks for taking the time to do that.

nice, very nice.

So 4fps is the fastest it can take photos at and be clear?

Can it get to 15fps as they claim or even near what they claim?

Thank you for the photos once again.

Proof I have a BlueJay to intice to my feeder with peanuts. He was surveying his domain.




Shot him through my upstairs bedroom double pane window. He was on the very top of tree on right.



Not a bad shot through the double pane glass!

Ive shot at the 15 frames a second but only indoor. The pics were ok but probably not great. I havent tried it in good lighting yet.

I am hoping to try a P90 in the next couple of days – at my local Best Buy. I have a couple of Questions:

Looking through the online manual, the P90 Sports Continuous Mode description leaves me with a question.

Minimum ISO is stated as limited to 640 [ & 6400 max.].

Then there are various settings described – 2 Continuous H [ High, I presume ?] and Continuous M and L [ Medium & Low?].

First Question: Is the ISO 640 minimum for all of the P90's Sport Continuous modes? The manual seems to say this.

I cannot imagine that ISO 640 will provide me with high image quality in the shooting where I typically use ‘burst mode' in my current camera – a 5+ year old Panasonic FZ10.

I typically take wildlife pictures & have my camera [ always] set to take multiple exposures. To maximize the chances of at least one shot with minimal blur @ maximum zoom & a shot with the subject not moving.

Links to a couple of examples below.

Further into the manual I see, starting on page 118, reference to Continuous Mode. The first frame rate I see, though, appears quite ‘slow' – 1.4 frames per second. [ My FZ10 is approx 4 frames per sec.]

But the "Multi-shot 16" appears to shoot at 7.5 frames per sec. – at lower resolution – but I am unclear from reading the description if I would be left with only 1 picture – or 16 – or 17 [ 16 + some sort of composite to form what the camera thinks is ‘best'?

If the result is 16 or 17 saved pictures, I think I'd be fine – and I'd pick the ‘best' myself, after the fact – on my PC.
If only 1 picture is saved – the composite ‘best' – that would not be acceptable.

[[ Edit: or is the 'result' a single 4x4 matrix = 16 pictures in one?? ]]

So – Question 2: Has anyone used this feature?
If not, can someone please try this & report here?
I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks!

Unclear on so many things . . .

Samples from ‘burst' mode:

I've never used that feature on this camera or any of the others I've owned.
I prefer not to use anything less than full resolution.
Maybe someone here as tried it and will post. If after a few days, no one does, I'll try it out along with the video.

AHHHH!!!!! My house is full of these things.



I tried different apertures to get the entire bug in focus but it didnt seem to work. Im still unsure how the zoom feature works with the macro setting. Whats the correlation between them?
