I have the same problem. I have found that enabling the voice mode works for me so I can take a picture by saying "smile".  Hopefully Samsung will bring out an update that will fix the problem.

I would like to add my voice to this! We need to be able to disable burst mode AND set the volume controls so that (if we want) they do nothing in the camera app. There must be many of us who don't want any of the "zoom, take pictures or take video" options.

Alas, I do not have a answer for your desire to diasable burst mode.

 

The Samsung S7 Edge was the best camera App I have ever had.  Great pictures especially in low light.

Now it is not even usable.   Burst mode seems to engage all the time and ruins the photos.  I just get a sting of fuzzy out of focus shots.

I missed out on geting any good photos of my daughter and her friends over parents weekend because of this phone.  

 

Hopefully the google camera app has not added this terrible feature.

I did find a temporary work-around until Samsung decides to make burst-mode toggle-able (i.e. turn it off). 

I discovered Burst Mode is automatically disabled when one shoots in Raw Mode
This won't appeal to many people without Photoshop or Lightroom because the saved files (an open source DNG file + a JPG) are uncompressed, much bigger in file size, and require a DNG reader from Adobe to see it on computers and "develop" the DNG file - a sort of digital negative.
And yet, this creates another problem. In Pro mode, setting the toggle to save Raw files, not only disables (temporarily) the Burst Mode, it automatically routes storage to only the built-in camera storage, not the external micro-SD card. Samsung saw the error in this and changed it (returning more storage options to the user) in the hotly-contested Note-7, but as of now, my DNG files are filling my camera storage and need perioding housecleaning.

Hope this helps some. Believe me, I know this is an unacceptable fix. But in the absence of any help from Samsung, some might find it a usable band-aid.

You really have to wonder whether Samsung is deliberately doing this to wind up customers. You can turn off this useless "feature" in Raw Mode but not in Normal Mode? Has anybody, anybody anywhere, chosen to buy an S7 because it has an unremovable Burst Mode "feature"?

more likely that in raw mode its not possible to save fast enough for burst mode....

Russ 57 - exactly! And that's why the Raw Mode is not a good solution to simply avoid Burst Mode. Instead of filling it with bursts of 100 JPGS, you are getting Raw DNG files filling the camera storage.

I have volume set to the shutter button . When I press and hold the volume or  onscreen button in Pro mode using RAW I still get burst mode. It does not prevent burst. You can use the voice activated shutter, such as saying Shoot, and you will not get burst mode. It also helps against camera shake.
