    Nikon CP995 has a best shot selection mode. I think it is based ont he saem principle - using the JPEG file size as an indicator of picture sharpness. However it does a burst of 3 shots only.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    As I mentioned earlier, with digital files it is extremely easy to quickly identify the sharpest frame in a burst: simply look for the largest file size in the sequence. In a series of JPEG’s taken in sequence the one with the largest file size is invariably the sharpest.
    Interesting theory, may be i should try it out

    the CP4500 that i use also have this feature but i have not use it b4

    so is the best shot selection will automatically choose the sharpest pic and throw away those not so sharp one?

    how exactly it works? (I dun have the manual and i only use the CP4500 for astro, so i dunno how to use BSS)

    wonder if i can make use of this BSS to check if the telescope is focus properly

    Thanks!

    kind of reminds me of sport shoots when i wanted to make sure that i've at least one keeper shot... but on my first shot with a borrowed long lens, indeed this method works well.

    Never used this feature, that's why gasak the wrong number...it should be 10 frames for BSS.
