Getting great focus is one thing, but capturing the best moment on the sensor can be difficult if you are shooting just one frame at a time. In the world of sports, and in life in general, things move pretty fast. If you blink, you might miss it. The same can be said for shooting in Single Frame mode. Fortunately, your D7000 comes equipped with a Continuous High (CH) shooting—or “burst”—mode that lets you capture a series of images at up to six frames a second. You can also select Continuous Low (CL), which allows the user to customize the desired frames per second by using the Custom Settings (Figure 5.8).

Setting up and shooting in continuous shooting mode

Mode dial lock

  1. Press the Mode dial lock at the top left corner of your camera (A).
  2. While pressing the dial lock release, simply turn the Release Mode dial to either CL or CH. CH will provide up to six frames per second and CL will provide one to five frames per second, based upon the user’s preference. To set up CL, go to D6 in your Custom Settings menu. (For more on this, refer to page 217 of your user manual.)

Using continuous mode means that you are sure to capture the peak of the action. Using the continuous shooting mode causes the camera to keep taking images for as long as you hold down the shutter release button. In Single Frame mode, you have to release the button and then press it again to take another picture.

Using the continuous shooting mode causes the camera to keep taking images for as long as you hold down the shutter release button. In Single Frame mode, you have to release the button and then press it again to take another picture.

Your camera has an internal memory, called a “buffer,” where images are stored while they are being processed prior to being moved to your memory card. Depending on the image format you are using, the buffer might fill up, and the camera will stop shooting until space is made in the buffer for new images. The camera readout in the viewfinder tells you how many frames you have available in burst mode. Just look in the viewfinder at the bottom right to see the maximum number of images for burst shooting. As you shoot, the number will go down and then back up as the images are written to the memory card.
