Burst mode, also known as continuous shooting mode, varies from model to model. Some digital cameras even offer more than one type of burst mode. A burst mode often limits the size of the photos. Sometimes, burst mode limitations are based on the amount of free storage space remaining on a memory card.
Burst mode works especially well with fast-moving subjects. One drawback to burst mode with some models is that the LCD (liquid crystal display) goes blank as the photos are being shot, which makes it difficult to follow the action of the subjects.
