It depends on the situation.
It depends on the situation.
Different features for different situation. Just use the right one when it is called for.
Nobody is gonna blame one if he uses either mode but get good comments and quality for his photo.
No use to compare both modes. It is just like comparing ppl who uses M mode with Av or Sv modes.
this is akin to having a dual transmission car and you always select M and change gear yourself... if technology can be there to ease our usage, why not leverage on it? i am thankful that current technology has made my work easier, as well as faster too. but i also appreciate the raw nature of photography where everything is in manual. i do have a TLR that uses film, a mechanical shutter, as well as manual focusing... but you cannot expect me to use my TLR for an event/assignment per se...
This topic will be a never ending story....
Some say tomato, some say tomatoe.
In the end, people can choose what they want to use or need to use. What matters is the end result. Why bother even talking about this senseless topic?
Anw, i tink i will stop discussing here, imho pretty pointless to debate single vs continuous.

There are some people who didn't get it and kept emphasizing on the fact that it's all personal preferences and hence, we don't have the right to restrict them, and so this thread is meaningless. While that's very true, I don't think that was the point of this thread, which is to talk about the ultimate uses of continuous burst and knowing and understanding more about this continuous burst mode, which many seem to avoid and kept on harping on the assumption that the point of this thread was to criticize those who use continuous burst excessively and unnecessarily.
I got to say this, there are many people who got their DSLRs and there they go, continuous burst for all the shots, which is pointless. This is the ultimate purpose of this thread, to make people ask themselves, whether they really need the continuous burst mode for everything or not. Apparently, people just don't seem to want to let these beginners be aware of the problem they might have and instead, these liberal advocates preach about the right to do what people want, with the possibility that they do not exactly know what they really want.
This is akin to RF vs SLR. Both take photos and have produced astonishing results. However, some may perceive RF to offer a much better shooting experience and whatnot while some may see SLR as a symbol of convenience. Yes, this will be never ending but this is not meaningless. There is this misconception that anything that is never ending is senseless, (add a few more degrading terms if you wish to).
Ultimately, the targeted audience of this thread is the group of people who use the continuous burst for the sake of using it. In this case, it's obvious that it will not be never ending. Like I said, those who have faith in what they are doing, they do not have to resort to using certain phrases that would do nothing but reflect rather badly on them.
If you are the deal, then grow stronger and fight for what you believe in and perhaps, try to form your own opinions and not just blindly follow people because their opinions sound like yours.
I have said my piece and
Moderators, please close this thread as this thread, that was aimed to question the norm of using the continuous burst for everything, has been seen as a senseless, nonsensical, insensitive and subjective thread, just because they could be the ones doing that and have become too strong a person to admit that and just conveniently dismiss this thread. I do not mind if you ban me or give me a couple of infractions, so if you feel the need to do so, go ahead. Thank you.
If I recall there were 1 or 2 who said they use continuous burst on the majority, I don't see any further discussion with them from you? So, ultimately, what you want? Lol. You can close your own thread, no need wait for mods.
What is my take on this? And I told you. My take is that this is a meaningless topic.
Especially the direction you started the ball rolling, and the same way you NOT facilitating a constructive discussion of sorts. My perception of what you are trying to do, is not to engage newbies who machine gun, but more to talk down those who do.
Why don't we all forget your misadventure here and let sleeping dogs lie. If you're still intent on spreading your message, hold some FOC photoshoots/gatherings for educating beginners on the finer points of single shot vs continuous burst. You get less back talk and more impressionable minds. Hope you're a better teacher than at leading discussions.
sigh... thread closed. and i don't think why i need to explain.
