      I would say i pressed for the second one and think the third was the one i got on the press, the other two from before i pressed.
      At the moment ime running 6 before and two after, so got some shots far too early.

          really good pics of examples of pro cap, i have taken flies flying and dragonflies in flight with this feature although i dont use oly lenses.if they get the tracking and focus capture better (quicker and more sensitive adjustment) then it will be near perfect till movie single shot beats it.

            The butterfly is your best yet. A great example.

              Butterfly is great well done. I'm interested in how you know when you actually pressed the shutter? when I tried pro cap I found it very difficult to know the difference as the shutter was silent and it just seemed to have no feel to it. It seemed to me to be pretty much guesswork. I therefore set it to capture as many before and after as possible to make sure I got a shot and hence ended up with thousands of images mostly to delete!

                On this occasion it was an educated guess as i had deleted the not wanted images,so i tried to work it out from previous file numbers that i had kept.


                My way, right or wrong would be if i have set 6 pre release shots then in theory the first 6 files would be pre release.

                  I think I need to try again sometime with a lot less pre and post capture frames like you did. With so many images I just got overwhelmed with it.

                    With lots of images you can get a movie effect by scrolling through the images in an image viewer.

                      These are very impressive. Which lens were you using? When i use PC, tracking a bird, I lose the continued motion in the viewfinder as if it were buffering, but still get a full series of shots written to the card, perhaps it is buffering? Anyone any ideas?

                            Butterfly in Flight is amazing.

                              Good pictures!

                              My trick is to use my iPhone as a trigger. It has a mode in the simple interface to ‘half press’ the shutter button, so provided it’s a case we can use a tripod pointing to a fixed position, with the pro mode activated. Then it’s just a matter of waiting comfortably seated to see the event and then press shutter in the mobile phone when the event happens.

                              If tripod is not usable then classical way. Trade off is that battery consumption is noticeably higher.

                                Been out of it a bit with the hot weather but had a quick play today.
