Hi,
To turn off continuous shooting mode, select Single mode.

does not address question. Why s the camera shooting 6 frames and only one available in playback with backlighting off?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
This is by design to save time, as the frames should all be very similar or almost identical.
As you have already indicated, the others available by pressing OK.

How do I turn the fucntion off? This makes rapid fire action shots impossible.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Please clarify what function you wish to turn off?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I want to fire continuously and not shoot 6 frames each time, but instead only fire when the shutter is pressed.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
It's like it is firing in HDR mode but backlighting choice is off.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Ok, then you need to turn off the continuous shooting mode, by selecting Single mode. The camera will then fire once each time the shutter button is pressed.

it should shoot continuously without combinjng the images. I want access to each frame that is fired ?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
No, if you want to shoot continuously then you will have to use Continuous mode, and it will combine the images, as that is how it is designed to work.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
no other camera works that way, there must be a way to tun it off. You are saying the only way to have access to each frame is to shoot single shot? I don't believe that could be true.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
On this particular model, continuous bursts are grouped together.
It is not possible to "ungroup" them - the camera does not have such a function.
You can see this in the user manual:

burst mode is a different selection from continuous and continous has several speeds. You are saying they all combine frames?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Correct!
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
so what is the difference between the burst setting and continous?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Burst mode and Continuous mode are different names for the same mode.
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Then why do they have different settings to select them?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
According to the manual, you should only have Continuous mode on this model.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
it has single, cont h, cont m, cont l, bss, and mutlishot burst. I want to shoot at a concert quickly and see each frame, you are saying the only way to do that is to select signle? I can't believe that is true.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
You cannot see each frame if you use continuous or multishot burst mode as the camera will group the sequential shots together as they are all part of one "group" of shots, not individual shots.
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
how is the resulting save shot determined? What if subject moves during shooting?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
There are multiple shots saved - these can be reviewed on the camera by selecting the multishot and pressing ok, or by reviewing on a computer.
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
So it is only on the playback on the camera that you see only one unless you push ok?
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Correct!
