K20D Burst Mode - Batter up
Posted By: daacon, 05-02-2009, 11:03 PM

I called our first practice today. Slo-Pich season starts Monday assuming no snow/rain

Here's one of our younger members @bat. We are slowlyy replacing us 'expereinced folks' with our offspring haha.

I was playing around with Burst mode. I will only show the middle 4 , there are 3 shots before this and 4 after. Works well - good for web shots for sure and 4x6 prints.

Even at 1/1000 shutter speed the ball is blurred ....

Tamron 70-200 , f6.3, 1/1000, 107mm, ISO 400

When you say burst mode is this the 20 fps or the 3 fps?

Nice shots by the way.

Thanks Frank - even with a class 6 sd card it takes a while.

An interesting series. And I think a little blur on the ball is welcome. The human eye does not see that kind of stop-mode action, much like we don't see the frozen faces and waves of surfers before a big wave hits them. I wonder if can use burst mode to see how quickly my kids get up to volunteer for some chores!
