Your camera’s frame buffer and why you need to know about it.
Imagine owning a camera that only allowed you to take one shot and then forced you to wait for a second or so before you could take another. That, I think you’d agree would be slightly restrictive. The fact that digital cameras have continuous drive modes at all is down to something known as a frame buffer.

|The key to good sports photography is anticipating the peak of action so that you’re not shooting needlessly|
|Fast moving subjects such as this Spitfire would be difficult to capture without using continuous drive mode.|
