Fast Burst camera brings 30-shots-per-second burst mode to any Android device for free

Fast Burst camera brings 30-shots-per-second burst mode to any Android device for free
The current crop of high-end Android devices stands out not only with its quad-core processors, amazing hardware and huge screens, but also with one feature that really makes a difference when taking pictures - burst shot. It’s brilliantly realized on the HTC One X which can take up to the amazin 99 photos with an amazing speed, and the Galaxy S III is also worth a mention even though it can only snap 20 pictures in burst mode before stopping to take a breath.

But what if you don’t have those high-end Andorid devices and still want to capture a moment when it really matters? If you’ve tried capturing an image of a moving object on an Android smartphone, you already know just how challenging this could be. Think about those fancy wedding (or party) photos when everyone jumps and you have to capture that short moment with the whole crowd in the air. Yes, that’s when you need burst mode capture and Fast Burst Camera is the latest app to offer that functionality.

The best thing about it is that it’s already available on Google Play and it’s free in its lite, ad-supported version. For the full functionality, you’d still need to pay $3.99, but it seems like it’s worthit. It does what it say it does - straightforward and with no catches. The premium version of the app also gives you access to features like auto-focus and lighting setting.

FYI: photos not captured in full res. I don't know the exact resolution but file size plays around 150kb-400kb, so figure it out.

Can anybody confirm whether or not the GS3 or the One Series retains the image quality during burst shots?

I have the One X and it does retains the image during burst shots. However, This app is much more kick ass.

So you're saying that the One X shot quality is equal to this app? Which IMO the quality is poor.

Sorry, I meant to say One X retains the picture quality during its burst shot. But only has 4FPS. By using this app, I got 30FPS but the picture quality isn't as good as One X's burst shot. I just tested it out. However, it might seem different for other people. I don't know, it was just a quick test. I need to play with this app more :D

Hey I could live with 4FPS at original quality on my GS2. I have to wait for the GS3 though.

@jaytai0106 Maybe your just viewwing the pics on your phone? Try checking the size, it's nowhere near 8MP. On a big screen quality is bad bad bad, but decent enough if you have a low-end droid. GS3 and OneX take better burst shots.

I don't know for sure about the One X, but the GS3 retains it's 8mp resolution when using burst mode.

Yeah, I can confirm that. Sadly, I just downloaded it, took a few pics of things around the office, was disapointed than removed it.

Will it take 16:9 photos or the not so TV & laptop friendly 4:3??

Just downloaded the LITE version and LOVE IT! Nice being able to change the quality of the shots too! I might just have to splurge on the paid version! (i'm a woman/mom...what can i say...have kids, need this app...and just in time for vacation) This should easily be one of the Top Ten Apps of all time! :)

this is a decent app. so decent in fact that i bought the full version LAST MARCH. How does an app over a year old manage to be considered new? do people even browse the Play store?
