    It's all 2, and we're going to get different results with different things
    .
    This is a three photo burst which is very useful for capturing things in motion or for taking 3 very quick photos if you're short of time, you don't have to stop and take three photos individually. For example, if you witness something you that you want to take a quick photo of and it's a bird that's going to fly away soon, then this is very useful for that. I'm going to take a photo of this magnificent cup. I'm going to press the button and it will make several clicks.

    The interesting thing about this three photo burst is that you get different levels of light with each burst
    .
    As the camera and the aperture opens up, you get different effects with each image which is a nice contrast, and you can maybe select the one you like the most.

    There are other options within this if we return to camera mode and click again on the top button to return to Auto Bracket
    .
    We're going to select 1/3EV.

  12. 12
    I'm going to take a picture of the cup using stability by placing the camera on a stable flat surface
    .
    Here's photo one, it has a lot of light.

  14. 14
    Photo three
    .

    There's actually more light and less definition than in the other set of 3 photos

Questions and Answers

I have a Panasonic DMC FZ200 and I want to switch off burst mode?

The burst mode is driving me crazy! I keep switching it off but it keeps kicking in and I just don't want it. Seems to trigger in poor light. I have looked at instruction book and can't see where I can switch it off.. I have tried: The instruction book told me to switch off white light setting but I can't work out how to do that or how this affects the burst mode. The burst mode is just annoying!. I think it was caused by: No idea. It didn't do this when I first bought the camera about 3 months ago
