Continuous shooting capabilities
Analyze golf swings and other action sequences by taking advantage of the Caplio G4wide's various continuous modes. In M-continuous mode, with the shutter button held down the camera memorizes the last 16 shots in one file for two seconds of footage. This comes in handy when you are uncertain about the start or finish of a particular action. In S-continuous mode, it can take a series of 16 shots in one file for two seconds of footage with just one press of the shutter button. When reviewing the 16 shots during playback, each frame can be enlarged individually, and you can quickly browse back and forth through all 16 shots to create the feel of an animated movie.
