Hey i was wondering if doing burst shots lowers the quality of the pictures?
Not usually. It just shoots more regularly than if you tried to squeeze the shutter button over and over again.
I also heard on the S9500 (the camera im getting) has an option to lower the MP to get faster shooting, is that true?
Most likely. If the camera doesn't have to process as many pixels, then it can process each image more quickly allowing it to be ready to take another picture in less time.
I have a SONY CyberShot 7.2 MP, and, whenever I take burst shoots, it lowers the quailty of the picture, from 7.2 MP to 1MP.
Is is better to have a faster card when shooting burst.
It depends on the camera.
When you take a shot, the camera has to process the image and then save it to the card. Usually there is a buffer, which stores the data between steps. If the processing is slower than the writing, then a faster card will do you no good at all.
If the buffer gets full and it's waiting while it writes to the card, then a faster card should help.
I totally agree, thats why I said it is better but not totally necessary.
