Photododo Quick Tip: Getting sharper hand-held photos

Here's a quick tip for getting sharper hand-held photos:

Choose burst mode. The second or third bursted photo will usually be much more in focus (i.e., clearer) than the first.

Here's why: When hand-holding (i.e., not using a tripod or remote shutter release), pressing the shutter button moves the camera, if only slightly. This movement, especially in low light or with moving objects, can really blur a photo. However, when using burst mode, that first shutter press is the only one you'll need to get 2 or 3 (or more) photos. Since the second and third photos do not require a shutter press, those photos will be clearer.
