Nice selection Brian.

I think I'm suffering from sunset overload at the moment, lol.

I've updated your latest five, keep up the good work.

Brian,

I just spent some time looking at your photos of fireworks. They are truly superb. I never had success with my Olympus 2020Z and fireworks because of the slow lag time I believe.

My new DX7440 is very fast..

Can you give me a tip on your settings for fireworks.

Fred

Fred,,i use the kodak DX6490,,,,,

But it really makes no difference in the shutter lag,,,it would have to be really bad to make any difference,it`s just timing,,and that`s easy..

Set your DC to landscape mode if you have it or set the focus to infinity,,i`m sure you must be able to do that somehow on your`s...

Then set your shutter speed to 2 secs and the aperature to 5.6....or anything close to this,,,the most important part is a long shutter speed....1.5 to 2 secs is preferable..

The trick is to have your finger on the shutter release and when it explodes hit it...this way you`ll get the long trailers of fire...

Most of the newer kodaks actually have a fireworks option that presets this for you....

Hope this helps........



Brian

Thank you Brian. My DX7440 does indeed have a fireworks setting and the manual suggests using a tripod so the shutter speed must be slow at this setting. I can't wait to try it.

I wonder if the burst mode which t under normal conditions might also render something.

Thanks again.

Fred
