Well, that's what I get for assuming that making vol keys zoom would prevent burst mode.Sorry.
I'm with you--it should be a setting. How often does anyone really want burst mode?
Actually. ..not solved. I didn't approve that. It is still a problem. It will always be a problem and I've just made allowances to try and keep my freaking finger away from the darn phone until I'm ready to shoot. I still accidentally get burst sets and I hate it.
There is no setting to solve this.
I understand your point but the original poster of this topic is user "mightymo1961". For him the issue was resolved. I'm just trying to help you understand how the features of this forum work.
I have the s7, not edge, and am with the mobile. My camera randomly takes 47 or 27 or 100 burst photos and I amnot pressing the shutter. I literally just stared at my phone while the photos racked up.
You might be accidentally doing the same thing that a lot of us did in order to keep our fingers away from the on-screen shutter button... Many of us carefully held the phone by its edges... Well, the volume up/down keys function as a shutter when the camera app is running. Just lightly touching one of those will trigger burst mode as well...
The only "work around" (if you can call it that) is to go into the phone settings and change the buttons to zoom in/out mode (instead of functioning as the shutter button). This, as you might suspect, doesn't "fix" anything... but rather keeps us from accidentally pushing the physical buttons and triggering burst mode.
Soooo many people complain about this.... yet Samsung insistes on saying "this isn't a bug.... it's a feature"... Ya... right.
Hi guys and girls,
I did a Google search about this issue BECAUSE, at my nephew's wedding last April where my only child was a Groomsman, I wanted to be sure I got the shot of my son and a bridesmaid entering the reception. Of course, I held the button down for more than 1 second, and that ensured I did NOT get the shot but at LEAST a hundred of worthless burst shots.
I am NOT trying to play the pity card, but my son and I are estranged, so I was NOT at his wedding. Ugh!!! I guess I will reset to default and NEVER press the "button" for longer than a tenth of a second. This lesson was a horribly difficult one to learn, but whenever I attend a once in a lifetime event, I will be bringing a SEPARATE digital camera!!!
Live and learn something new everyday of your life!!!!😉
