That's GREAT! ... if for some reason that makes you feel awesome about yourself, but in my opinion  that whole "machine gunning" stereotype applied to digital cameras is just lame.

Here's why:

1.  Paying customers don't give a rats behind how you got the shot.  They couldn't care less whether you're a seasoned sport photographer of 32 years knowing nearly the exact moment to depress the shutter and photograph their little Tommy running with the football or if you're a weekend photographer who finds it easier to just press-and-hold the shutter button for a full second when the action presents, and selects the money shot from 10 sequential shots during post.  Generally, no one cares.  They're paying for the shot and how you get it is of no concern.

Bingo. I shoot grammar and high school sports and parents will always say what great pictures I take. I never tell them they are only seeing maybe 5 to 10 percent of what I shoot, the rest I toss.
