There are several selections to choose in Drive Mode. Different digital camera might have different types of Drive Mode. For my camera, there are 5 selections. The selection of Drive Mode will indicate within the box ( In Green Circle).
- This Drive Mode only allow the user to capture one picture when the Shutter Button is fully pressed.
2) Low-Speed Continuous
- For continuous motion, you can use a Low-Speed Continuous Shutter to capture several pictures, until you release the Shutter Button. If the subject is not moving too fast, Low-Speed Continuous Shutter is recommended.
3) High-Speed Continuous
- This Drive Mode is about the same as Low-Speed Continuous Shutter, but in High-Speed now. You can capture several pictures by full pressed the Shutter Button, it won't stop capturing until you release the Shutter Button.
The maximum speed of High-Speed Continuous Shutter is depends on your camera. Professional level camera have a speed above 6.3 shots per second. If you want to capture fast and continuous motion such as Car Racing, Sports game and etc, High-Speed Continuous Shutter are recommended.
Of course, pay attention at the Focus and Exposure, you might get some blur and dark pictures in this Drive Mode. :)
4) 2 seconds Delay Timer
- A 2 seconds delay after you fully press the Shutter Button. Hrm, 2 second? Too short? You do not even have a chance to run in your camera target. Well, I will show you later.
Some digital camera allowed the user to set the timer and number of shots. But it is not allowed for my camera :(
By the way, there is a LED blinking once per second in front the camera to indicate the timer when you fully press the Shutter Button.
5) 10 seconds Delay Timer
- This seems useful to most users. You can capture a photo of your family including yourselves with this Drive Mode. First, you need a tripod or a table to set the focus before you press the Shutter Button. Once you fully press the Shutter Button, I believe 10 seconds is enough for you to run towards your family. ^^
