    Do you want a heap of pics one after another or just the ability to take pics fast when you want?

    If you have the manual

    Page 66 on TV settings- which is where you can alter the shutter speed.

    Page 59 - on continous shotting -which can take about 3 shots per sec.

    On the back of the body, to the right of the screen, there is a drive mode selector button. You need to press that and use the arrow keys to select the 'continuous shooting' mode. It looks like three tiny photos stacked up.
    The camera will shoot continuously while you hold the shutter down.

    I hope this helps you.

    You'd think stuff like this would be covered in the manual. Oh, wait, it is...

    this could mess your shutter up faster than normally if done all the time

    Well, maybe I was being a jerk (I was in a pissy mood this morning), and I'm sorry if you took it that way, but drive mode is covered in the manual...

    Besides, asfixiate got a laugh out of it, and that's what really matters.

    OMG Clay
    60% of threads can be answered on google or in manual. I started off this way and I heard the same stuff. Lefty was being sarcastic but saying what's probably on a lot of people's minds.

    what camera should I buy, is this camera better than this one, Can I take pictures with this camera, etc.

    Relax and dont take it to the heart.

    Once again, I'm sorry if my sarcasm offended you...I can be a pretty sarcastic bastard sometimes.

    Well, I didn't want people thinking I was the TPF a-hole (see, there, I self-edited myself so sensitive people wouldn't get offended by "oh noooo" seeing an expletive).
