In the stock camera app, iOS 7 has added a new burst mode feature that takes multiple photos in succession for as long as the shutter is pressed. Is there any way I can turn this feature off and have the app behave like the old one?
According to this article, there is no way to turn off burst mode.
Here are a couple of alternatives:
Currently iOS7 does not allow turning off burst mode when holding on the shutter button. This can be incredibly annoying for those who are used to holding on the shutter button and releasing to capture a shot in motion or taking a selfie. Also, you now need to be very careful when handing your camera to someone to take your picture as they may shoot off 20-30 images without knowing. Also, even with your flash set to 'on' the camera app does not wait for the flash to recharge and will shoot off many unusable images between flash cycles.
