I've had my S7000 for a couple of years now and never really taken advantage of most of it's functions. I'm trying to find the optimum settings for taking thunderstorm pics. I don't really understand the basics of photography, so just snap away in auto mode, which I think is a bit of a waste of a good camera, however my friends tell me that I take good shots.

I've got a tripod and a remote wire connector (can't remember the correct name for this) so the camera doesn't move.

We have some awesome storms here in Argentina and the other night we had a dry one, so I just stood under the canopy and snapped away about 200 shots...I got one finally, but i'd like to be a bit more scientific rather than hit or miss. \This pic got me a bit excited for more.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Great shot Marc12, I think the hit-or-miss method may be the only way with something as random as lightning. Just find the direction and keep the lens at the wide end to capture more of the sky.

Hey Pantera13, mouse button stick?

Hi,

i have been looking for a lightning trigger for quite some time. The followings seem the optimal ones in terms of cost and quality.

The expensive one which seems more professional:

The cheaper one which has lots of positive feedbacks on ebay:

Any feedback will be really appreciated from those who have experience with them.
