    The above was the best on I got... 20 second exposure trying to pre-empt when the lightening would happen and where... what a nightmare! Good thing my camera's digital as there would have been yards of wasted film.

    Quality pic BP - nice work.

    I just got a replacement for my broken camera; and I was pretty unimpressed to find the longest exposure time is 15 seconds - the much lower-spec Minolta D'image Z1 it replaces even had a B-Stop function. I think I'm going to miss that on stormy nights /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Have you got a hi-res version of the pic you shot anywhere?

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Cheers... I'll upload a pic of higher quality and let you know (cannot do this from work)... my camera's top spec is 5 mega pixel, but normally does the trick... good little Sony DSC-V1... amazing camera for it's type, and considering it is not SLR... SLR digital is still a little on the pricey side for my liking!

    Like the time that NY had a 3 day black out about 20 years ago... there now seems to be a huge number of 19 year olds in NY! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
