I am trying to take a pic that has a trail of pics following it to show a path of travel like you see in alot of snowboarding and sking pics. Does anyone know how to do this and how many frames per sec must your camra be able to do?
Thanks for the help!

If I were to try something like that, I would us a technique like andy describes (http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14346&page=2). Put your camera on a tripod, and use either a cable or remote to do the shooting. If your tripod is industrial strength, you may be able to use your hands to release the shutter. Make sure the focus is set on "manual" so the scene as a whole isn't changed, especially if you have to do some pain-in-the-ass panorama stitching thing. If you have to do the PITA stitching, be sure to use a bigass heavy tripod with smooth panning.

Hope this reads vaguely like english...
