      OK girls here's the scene. Being a lonely girl and also a carer to my sister the only
      enjoyment I get out of dressing up (other than the sheer thrill and sexy feel of it
      of course!) is to take as many pictures as can, in as many different outfits
      as possible.

      Now at the moment I'm using my cameraphone on self-timer, so I have to set the timer,
      walk back, pose, let the picture be taken, then go back up, reset the timer, pose
      and so on. It takes ages.

      What I'm looking for then is any sort of camera that would allow me to take
      several pictures with one press of the shutter (think it's called continuous burst or something?)
      or, failing that, a camcorder that would give me pretty decent stills from the video.
      I'm not talking about taking pictures with the camcorder. I have a Sony one
      which is ok but if you take a video and then try to get stills from that they're
      way below standard.

      If anyone has any suggestions I'd be delighted to hear from you. With all
      the walking up and down, setting timers etc I could easily fit in an extra
      outfit into my session.

      Thanks girls.

      hi ya some camcorders have the pic option and then you can also do vids to

      for my pics i use a fuji point n press it has 10 sec and 2 sec timers i use the 2sec one and can take loads of pics now also the newer cams will have the burst shot option to

      i do hope you get chance to go sometime and i know how hard it is to be a carer you are an amazing person to do it full time

      maybe one day you could tell your sister and if she is ok you could care for her and doll up at the same time a few days of the week

      love n hugs xxamyxx

      Amy can you just confirm that for me, as I'm hearing continuous means you have to hld the shutter down all the time, but if I'm posing a few feet away from the camera I can't do that (arms aren't that long!) so what I want is a way of say pressing the shutter, tottering back into position in my high-heels, smoothing down my skirt and then running through various poses while the shutter automatically clicks a few times, maybe ten. This would mean for each trip back up to the camera to hit the timer I would only have to do this every ten photos (say) rather than every single shot, as I am having to do now.

      Is that possible? Can you clarify please honey?
      Thx

      I use a HD camcorder to record myself, then I transfer the recorded tape to an editing programme on ther computer. You can select any frame of the image you wish and one click produces a HD still picture which you can send out on an Email or print it onto gloss photo paper, or even on a DVD or a Blu-ray disc. Hope this helps, if not the info might come in handy sometime

      I tend to just set my computer cam on record and 'flounce' around and then go back and freeze frame and use the snapshot button on any pose that looks good...I can get anything up to 300 pics from a few minutes of posing- not as clear as a camera but they come up ok

      An old topic I know but I have found a useful answer to this. The Canon Powershot SX40 (and others in the same range SX20, SX50 and SX1) all have a customised self-timer. This allows you to set the shutter delay for up to 30 seconds (plenty of time to totter into position, hitch up that skirt etc) and will then take up to 10 shots in quick succession. The camera itself doesn't look very ladylike for slipping into a handbag, but it does sometimes flatter the figure when one of the shots catches you just right. I've owned (and managed to break) three of the above cameras so I speak from experience. Saving up for my fourth right now...

      I wouldn't recommend a camcorder for 'decent' pics.
      I's assuming you want high pixel density? 1920x1080 is pretty low by photographic standards.
      I would look into a DSLR or bridge camera that has a continuous shoot option. You should be able to set the delay manually.
      A tripod and flash are a must too.
      Theres plenty of info out there, best thing is to try photography forums, specialist forums are a great was of tapping specialist knowledge for free.

      My current snappy-snaps cam cost £8.

      I look good because I light it well; although the ARRI lightning rig does cost £800.

      If you haven't got access to some light, go daylight and polish it up with some Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and/or Portrait Professional.

      An £8 camera and an £800 lighting rig?? You are one classy lady Daryl, no wonder you look so effortlessly fabulous. I have no idea how you do it, even with Photoshop and the best make-up kit in the world I'd still end up looking like Michael Gove with an £8 camera. Or worse! lol xxx

      £8, yeh, from a second-hand place. They plopped it in my hand and I said, 'Eh... Do I get box?' 'No'. 'Manual?' 'Nope.' 'USB cable?' 'What do you think?'

      You get what you pay, I guess. Saying that, I don't use the £800 lights that much. Just one mostly. The pic below (that people seem to like) was daylight, the £8 cam and a little dab of Photoshop. It's not about the camera, really, but knowledge of how light works. I didn't even use the reflector board, as you can see it's behind me.
