You’ll be able to pinpoint and adjust elements of your picture to get the photo you want.

Burst mode and Best Shot are also featured in many camera apps for various smartphone platforms—for example, Fast Burst Camera for Android and Photoburst for iPhone can shoot around 10 photos per seconds. This works great for action shots, however it doesn’t rule out the slight chance that someone or the other in a group blinks or looks away in every frame.
