There are several different ways to shoot continuously using the COOLPIX P520.
If you like to shoot using scene modes you could choose the "Sports" scene mode, which will shoot up to 7 pictures at a rate of about 7 frames per second. The "Pet Portrait" scene mode also has a continuous option, capturing from 3-5 pictures continuously. To choose a scene mode rotate the mode dial on the top of the camera to "Scene", then press the Menu button to display the Scene Menu. More information on Scene modes can be found starting on page 36 of the P520 manual.
If you are shooting in P, S, A, M or U modes then press the Menu button, select the shooting menu tab, then select "Continuous" to view the continuous shooting options. Detailed information on these options can be found starting on page 34 of the Reference section of the P520 manual.
