    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.

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

Questions and Answers

How do I turn burst mode off with a Panasonic Lumix?

I do not remember ever putting this in burst mode and now I cannot use my flash. I can't also upload any photos or share them because the file is too big.

To disable the burst mode, press the trash can button ("Q.MENU"). It is usually located to the lower-right of the LCD display.

To make images smaller, follow the instructions below.

  1. 1
    After copying the images to your computer, you can use an online tool like http://www.picresize.com/batch.php, where you just add files and download smaller images.

    You can also use a lot of photo editing software like ACDSee.
    Open an image and select "Resize" from editing options. If you are offered resolutions, then select "1280x1024" or "1920x1200" and keep the aspect ratio (this may alter the selected resolution a bit). Then, you can save the image from the options.

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
