I always have my camera in continuous shooting mode. With three FAST kiddos, it's the only way to guarantee a good picture every so often.
BUT...what happens when you turn your 6 year old loose with your camera in continuous mode you ask?
A cheesy grin of yourself.
Then your 6 year old says, "Mom, make a suprised face."
And proceeds to shoot you until you wrestle the camera away from him!!
