A57 CPAE mode [12 frames per second]
Took the A57 to a local park ... the blue wrens here are very fast moving and never stay still! Managed to get one good shot using CPAE mode ... whereas I failed to get any without it! When comparing to the single shot images I noticed that the CPAE mode was more zoomed and checking afterwards noticed when you move to this mode it indicates 1.4 x zoom. I'm assuming this means it takes more shots at a lesser image size - anyway I'm happy enough with the result.
I've cropped and sharpened slightly using the Sony software. I'm using a Tamron 18-200 and am pretty happy with it although I would like to be able to take sharper pics in circumstances like these! All C & C most welcome.
