The COOLPIX S9050 has a Top Continuous Shooting Speed at full resolution of up to 5 shots at approx. 9.5 frames per second. To shoot continuously on the COOLPIX S9050 you can either shoot in the Sports Scene Mode or the Continuous Mode.
To shoot in the Sports Scene Mode rotate the camera's mode dial to Scene, then select the Sports Scene mode from the Scene Menu. Press the shutter release button halfway to lock focus and exposure on your subject, then press all the way to begin shooting. Images are captured while the shutter release button remains pressed. For detailed information on the Sports Scene Mode see page 68 of the S9050 manual.
To shoot in the Continuous Mode rotate the camera's mode dial to the continuous shooting icon which looks like a series of stacked rectangles. Press the shutter release button halfway to lock focus and exposure on your subject, then press all the way to begin shooting. If you are shooting in Continuous H, Continuous L, Pre-shooting cache or BSS then images will be captured while the button is pressed. If you are shooting in Continuous H:120fps, Continuous H:60fps or Multi-shot 16 then the number of images taken are determined by the setting and there is no need to continue to hold the shutter release button down. More detailed information on the Continuous Mode starts on page 80 of the S9050 manual.
