Cloud Backup of Burst Mode Photos

Burst mode, also known as continuous shooting, is a creative way to make sure you catch all the action on camera. What it basically does is take multiple photos which created a sequence of images. You can then later pick the image that works best for you. For example, in an action shot you may pick the photo that shows the runner suspended in Mid-air.
