I'm primarily a sports photographer, so I was excited about the burst-mode feature on the P4P and hoped it would make it easier to capture fast action sequences that can't be captured with single shots. The P4P can capture up to 14 images in burst mode, but there's a big catch: the time interval between the shots is just way too short! It's like all those 14 shots are taken in half a second, which makes the whole burst mode useless!

Now here's my suggestion: Please increase the intervall between each single exposure in burst mode, so that e.g. 14 frames are recorded in an intervall of 2 - 3 seconds, that would make it much easier to capture action shots. Please also allow the user to choose from a variety of options, like 14 frames in 1, 2 or 3 seconds or similar.

I'll second that request, just a simple Frames Per Second selection would be just right.

Does anyone else think this is a good idea? GoPro has implemented the burst photo feature perfectly, so DJI should be able to do it, too!

As an architectural and landscape photographer, I hope a super fast burst mode is always available at least as an option.

There's a lot of extra quality available from averaging several burst images together in Photoshop, but they must be shot within a fraction of a second of a second of each other.  Averaging can reduce noise levels and increase resolution dramatically, but even slight aircraft drift compromises the result, even with realignment in Photoshop.

Good point, never thought of it that way!
BTW, do you notice any degradation in image quality comparing images shot in burst mode with images taken in single shot mode?

DJI have you viewed this request ?  I would like a burst mode where I can select how many images are taken per second, not as currently implemented 14 frames in less than 1/2 second.  This rapid fire is virtually useless of you want to capture a sport moment, or or sequence of images.  I am photographing a Lifeboat Launch, and I have to take each picture separately, about 1 every second, which is really too slow, if I could select 4 frames per second, then I could capture a 3 second event with 14 shots.  Please look at this request.  Thank you!

Finally someone who understands my request, thanks! Hopefully someone at DJI will respond to this topic, the requested feature should not be too hard to implement.

7/8 fps is quite reasonable for sports, 28 fps is way overboard, wonder why they thought that would be a good idea?
