Fast Burst Camera: Enjoying burst mode photo sequences on any Android device


Published onJuly 4, 2012

Imagine yourself watching the FIFA World Cup championship. Huge crowds gather around the stadium, hoping to get a closer glimpse at their favorite football players. You struggle to take photos of the entire event, yet find it hard to catch every action with your low- to mid-range Android phone. Then you eventually get disappointed.

If you’ve experienced situations similar to this too many times, then chin up! You’ve stumbled onto the right page.

Google Play Store developer, Spritefish, brings you Fast Burst Camera, an app with a very simple user-interface. It provides you with everything you’ll need from a fast-burst snapper. On high-end devices, the app is expected to catch 30 photos per second. In fact, on an HTCOne X, the camera can frame up to 99 photos at a very high speed.

But, what if you don’t have any of those high-end phones available on the market? Do you need to get a new phone to finally enjoy Fast Burst Camera? Of course not.

Even if you’re holding a low-end type of phone, you can still enjoy Fast Burst Camera and expect to come up with a respectable 5 to 10 shots per second. There is no shutter lag, and all you need to do is to press and hold the shoot button to take the burst shots. Once done, you’ll finally see the scene-by-scene images of the event you’re watching.

Fast Burst Camera proves to be a very useful tool for capturing photos of momentous life events such as weddings, or sports events such as swimming, skateboarding, and the like. With this app, you don’t have to worry about blurry photos anymore. It snaps photos in very quick succession, and you’ll later get the chance to sort them, and choose which one you think is best. You can even make animated pictures if you want to.

While you could just easily use a video recorder app for special events, well-taken sequence shots sometimes capture the moment better. And, even if you have a camera app which already supports this feature, Fast Burst Camera is still worth checking out as it might just surpass the one you’re using.

The app’s free/lite version is ad-supported and has the basic features. However, if you want  the full functionality of this app, you need to pay US$3.99, which is very well worth it. The premium version allows you to access its auto-focus and lighting settings.

If you’re now all fired up to enjoy Fast Burst Camera, then all you have to do is to get your hands busy and download the app now. Soon, you’ll be snapping sequences of high-quality images in a short time.
