In 1970 I worked for an international wire service and was assigned to shoot baseball at Yankee Stadium. I had a Nikon F (in those days -- of course I did). I could shot maybe four frames per second -- nice when you're filming a dust up at home base where the runner bowls over the catcher. The other, bigger, better financed international wire service had a Hulcher camera. It took 24 frames per second on 70mm film. And their cameraman had been shooting with that thing for 24 years at Yankee Stadium. If I happened to get a photo merely as good as his, I declared myself a victor. Cameras are tools. His Hulcher tool worked fine in that time and place.
Most people think with today's cameras you just punch the button and you will automatically get a wonderful sequence of photos. Acdtually you have to time when you take the first photo and the next and the next. It's a series on individual photos that you take unless you want to get the "between" shots that show little or nothing. It is a lost art.
