Don’t have a One X or an S3? Have Yourself Some Burst Shot Anyway!

Some of the best new features on the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III, besides their rippin processors and beautiful giant screens, has to be their cameras and the new capabilities of those cameras.  Some of these camera modes include taking pictures while recording video, best shot mode, and burst shot.  Well, for those of you who are hanging on to your old device and not jumping ship for one of these new super phones, you can have your own burst mode.  Available in the Google Play Store is an app called (you guessed it) Fast Burst Camera.  Two versions are available, Fast Burst Camera Lite for free and a paid version.  I tried out the free version on my Epic 4G Touch and it worked awesome.  The app developer, Spritefish, claims your camera may take photos up to 30 images per second for high end devices and I believe it.  I didn’t time the how long I pushed the shoot button down, but I don’t think it was much longer than a second.  I ended up with 35 photos to choose from.  I was concerned I would have to go into my gallery and have to manually delete 35 photos I didn’t necessarily want, but it has a built in feature to easily delete large bunches of unwanted photos and select the ones you want.  The paid version, which costs $3.99,  provides the ability to use the flash, manual focus, zoom, and the shutter sound can be turned off (oh, and it’s ad free).  Burst shots are obviously most applicable for sports events, trying to catch special moments with wiggly kids, and any fast moving whatever you’re trying to capture an image of.  So who’s excited they don’t have to go out and buy a new phone for this feature?  I think it will be useful to have.  Let us know if you’ve tried it out and what you think…
