    i have a sony DSC H2 SLR.
    it's only 6 megapix.
    only real problem i have is the speed of continuous shots.
    hopefully i'll be upgrading to something better soon.
    i've used a canon and really like them..mostly because they shoot raw.
    but other than that it takes a pretty good 'family pic'

    having said that, i took these shots on standard 'point and shot' setting..as you can see it would have been good to have a few extra frames between shots,.. i miss heaps of good surfing action shots.

    loving that last shot!

    the only problem with those cameras and sequential shooting is the shutter lag.
    Once you work out the lag timer, you can prejudge the peak image motion point and capture the best of a sequence with one shot.

    a
    review for your camrea has the shutter lag (the elapsed time between
    depressing the shutter and capturing an image)at: just under
    1/10 second when pre-focused and 3/10 second including autofocus time

    more interesting info about shooting modes

    The H2 offers two continuous shooting modes, Burst and Multi Burst. In Burst mode, the H2 captured 7 images at 7/10 second intervals and took 4 seconds to clear its full buffer; subsequent images could be captured only after removing your finger from the shutter button and re-depressing it. During Burst shooting, the camera briefly displays the last captured image, making it difficult to follow a moving subject. In Multi Burst mode, the H2 records 16 shots in a single 1280x960 image. You can specify the Multi Burst shot interval: at 1/30 sec, the 16 images will be captured in 1/2 second, at 1/15 second they will be captured in 1 second, and at a 1/7.5 second interval the sequence is completed in 2 seconds. Multi Burst is intended for uses such as evaluating an athlete's form. Performance measurements were made while using a SanDisk 1GB Ultra II
    Memory Stick Duo Pro,shooting 6-megapixel images in Fine quality.

    thanks phoam, Very Happy

    and cheers for the info.
    yeah, i have sussed the shutter lag and set it to a fast as it will go.
    i only tried the burst mode a coupla times and gave up on it as the pics come out all in one frame.
    i suppose it could be handy for making moving gifs...but then the camera has a movie mode anyway...must try it one day.

    it's okay for a cheapy camera. i'll give it to one of the kids once i can afford a new one.

    check this phoam..
    This is a photo from the 2009 Inauguration, In which you can see IN FOCUS The face of each individual in the crowd.

    You can scan, double click and zoom to any section of the crowd... wait a few seconds... and the focus adjusts.

    The picture was taken with a robotic camera at 1,474 megapixel. (295 times the standard 5 megapixel camera)
