“Why does Cheese have a maximum photo count of 100 in burst mode?” questions have popped up quite a few times on the cheese list. It is just a teeny, tiny bug – fixed in master.

The work around is simple:

Till Cheese 2.32

Raise it to whatever value you want in line 8 of /usr/share/cheese/cheese-prefs.ui.

(If you don’t know what version you are running, check Help -> About)

(Fix is just raising the limit from 100 to something that most people will likely not hit. If they do hit it – well, line 40 on /usr/share/cheese/cheese-prefs.ui :D)
