This paper talks about clicking multiple pics of dynamic object using burst mode of android camera. Idea is to generate burst images intelligently and save only those which are currently required. Burst photo is userinitiated photo capture where user long press the capture icon and capture continuous images (mostly 20-30 continuous images). Usage of burst capture is where a moving object or Action is present, and user is not sure which frame user wants or which frame would be the best suited for a specific environment. To overcome this, end user captures continuous photographs (which are basically called burst mode capturing) and then based on some heuristics. select the best picture out of all captured pictures. Selection of Heuristics and its criteria is decided by Deep learning model. Apart from automatic selection this paper also includes manual selection of objects. End user has been given flexibility to choose their own scene, object, moment which they want to shoot.
