Well, I can't say I have much experience in this area, but here are some shots I took with my Pentax *istDL with the 18-55mm kit lens. Bulb mode and sitting on a pretty cheap tripod. Pretty much just pressed the shutter release, held it as long as I felt needed for the picture and voila.

Allan-

The Scene Modes which includes a subset called "Fireworks" really does work quite well. Here is an example photo.

I have the Canon XT and shot great fireworks pictures with it during the 4th of

July, I set my camera at ISO 200, manual mode, aperture f/16, and set the

shutter on bulb. Hope this helps.
