My old phone had a mode on it called BestPic whereby it would take approx 5 pictures instead of just the one - before and after the button was pressed - allowing you to choose which was the "best pic".
I've looked through the manual of my Canon SX20 and cant find anything so my question is: does this go by another name on 'proper' cameras or has anyone even seen this before?
Appreciate you (D)SLR wizards maybe would never need or even dream to use this mode. Just trying to help with my poor timing the closest I have found is burst mode but still understand this further in terms of how the focus works.

I have a DSLR now and use continuous shooting all the time. In fact, I've just upgraded my SLR and one of the major pluses of the new on is faster continuous shooting!

Perhaps I have burst and continuous mixed up. Will have a look!

You can only access this feature in the P mode.

Yep, that's the setting I was aware of and tested a little on the SX20. Maybe the feature I am looking for is more of a gimmick or, more likely, just not available on my camera. Continuous mode should do the trick though - the only difference is the "BestPic" mode actually took a few pics of before you pressed the button.
