Ordinary burst photography may fail to capture the decisive moment of a golf swing or other fast-moving event. For split-second shots the like of which you've never taken before, try switching to movie mode, where the camera can record photos at up to 120 fps while the shutter-release button is pressed.
1 Select movie mode.
Rotate the photo/movie selector to .
2 Set the frame size and rate to 1920 × 1080; 120p.
The number of shots the camera takes per second is equivalent to the frame rate chosen for Frame size/frame rate in the movie shooting menu or for Frame size and rate/image quality in the movie-mode menu. For a frame rate of 120 fps, choose 1920 × 1080; 120p. The photos will be the same dimensions as the movie frame and have an aspect ratio of 16:9.
3 Choose Continuous release mode.
Press the () button, rotate the main command dial to highlight Continuous, and then press .
4 Choose the focus and AF-area modes.
Set the focus mode to AF-C and the AF-area mode to Dynamic-area AF.
5 Rotate the mode dial to "M".
Exposure cannot be adjusted manually in modes P and S when movie mode is selected. Choose mode M to make your own adjustments to aperture, ISO sensitivity, and other exposure settings.
6 Adjust exposure.
Adjust shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity. To reduce blur caused by subject motion, choose a shutter speed at least as fast as 1/1000 s.
Press the shutter-release button halfway or press the AF-ON button to focus.
8 Take pictures.
Press the shutter-release button the rest of the way down and keep it pressed to shoot a burst of up to three (Z 7) or two (Z 6) seconds. Pictures will be taken even if the camera fails to focus.
Photos are recorded in JPEG fine★ format. Flicker reduction is disabled.
