Has anyone explored the continous burst mode with the 3000z? I've read that the camera can snap at 2fps. Are the frames clear and sharp? That is,
can I take a continuous burst of someone swinging a golf club and acquire
sharp frame by frame action? One more question: the movie mode of the Epson captures at 15fps. Can you view each frame separately (one frame at a time) or must it be viewed as a movie? Again, can I take a picture of someone swinging a golf club in movie mode and then analyze the action one frame at a time?

For Nikon s6000 (altho this question is posted in D5000 section) Hope you have read the instruction manual by now. In Auto mode, go through the menu to get the shooting mode - there are I think 2 different continous shooting modes for your camera - one standard and one sport (2 others but they either select the best shot of serveral or combine them to make the best shot). Pretty impressive. Don't look in the manual for 'burst' mode, it's called 'continuous'.
You put the camera into one of the Continuous modes by holding the Release Mode button (to the right of the LCD control panel on the top of the camera, marked with a set of overlapping rectangles) and turning the command dial on the back. The two choices are Continuous Low and Continous High (marked with the overlapping rectangles and the letter "L" or "H"). Frame and shoot as normal.
In continous mode the camera will take pictures as long as your finger remains on the shutter release button or until the buffer fills up. In Continous High the camera will take as many as 4.5 pictures a second. Custom Setting #d6 controls how fast Continous Low shoots.
Bear in mind that the speeds mentioned are only maximums. If your shutter speed is set to half a second, you're obviously not going to take four pictures in one second.
You have to set the drive mode to H for continuous High.
The button is on the top of the camera next to the LCD. It has an icon of overlapping rectangles. It sets S (single frame), L (continuous Low), H (continuous High), Self Timer and Remote Control. Just press it again until S is shown to get back to single frame.
I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.
..your not in "Interval Mode", are you?? IF your cam is set to start an "interval @ say 2400hrs( midnight) and to take pics every 1 min./5 min/;ect., IT WILL! Make sure you're in "AUTO MODE"...It's easy to accidently hit the mode switch when moving the power switch from off to on..(I didn't find this out by reading a book...)
I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames per second of continous shooting. But it also identifies a 20 and 30fps which refers to the movie mode. If the manual states a MSH type Sd card, it usually means that the card may be of a faster recording speed to take continous shots. But I think what you might mean continous shots could be the 3 or 5 second burst on the Digital SLR cameras. These modes are usually for sports and very good for Formular 1 racing pictures. The specs of your camera does not have a sports mode or any continous burst. So you will be stuck in the 1.4fps levels. Let me know if this helps.
Hey there timdjones7, the camera will only shoot 3 fps when placed in Continous Shooting Mode. You can set this via the dial controls on top of your camera. Rotate it to the little icon that looks like a man running. Now you are set to go. Have fun!
s I understand it from what I have seen on the Web, the 3000Z can operate in several modes:
1. Fully automatic (camera select both
2. Manual (user sets both aperture and shutter speed).
3. Aperture Priority mode - user sets aperture and camera chooses correct shutter speed to get a good exposure
Apparently there is no Shutter Priority mode (user cannot set only the shutter er speed and allow the camera to set the aperature to get a good exposure). This option is available on the Epson 850Z camera and this seems like a silly ommision to make on a "high-end" camera like the 3000Z.
