    Thanks for the tips. I have just purchased a Canon Powershot A80 for our trip in 5 weeks time. I am busy practising so I know how to get the best out of the camera whilst away. I am already on page 42 of the instruction book! Just 232 pages to go I have also purchased a 512mB memory card and a 256mB one in case I get carried away with photos!!

    I was thinking of buying those waterproof disposable cameras for the Waterparks and swimming with Manatees?!?!?!

    Great tips, everyone! What I normally do is use the nighttime mode on my Kodak Advantix. I should also try using the sport mode as well. I found that my grandpa's Olympus camera (non digital) got THE CLEAREST pics of any I've seen anywhere. Awesome IllumiNations pictures!! I want an Olympus...!!!

    a trick

    one thing i know when taking pics of fireworks is to turn your flash off. i have never tried it but think i am going to. also set your camera if possible to fast shooting mode

    hope this helps

    also if u have a star filter this makes the fireworks look awsome

    i am not a professional by the way, i have just read up on a lot o photography

    Keep the camera really still while and about 5 seconds after taking the picture.

    Fireworks

    I'm not sure what features are on everyones camera, but on mine I have a mode for taking pictures of fireworks and they came out ok. I'll post it for ya so you can see. It's not perfect like I would want but any ways here you go.


    Note : Sorry but I needed to delete your picture as it was oversized for our boards.
    If you would like to show us this picture again , please do , but use the manage attachments link below that shows up when entering a post. This will help you get the size right .

    I'm sorry about this. It won't happen again. I did use the manage attachments like you suggested, the only thing is I'm having trouble resizing the picture. I did get it to the suggested size, but there was nothing left of the picture to really show. So I'm not going to post the picture. Maybe what I can do though is post a link to Photobucket which shows the picture I tried to post.
    So here is the link to view the picture: http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c3...Fireworks3.jpg

    Re: Taking Photos Of Fireworks?

    I just looked into a digital camera that can take pictures of fireworks. I went to my loco camera store and was told there is only one digital camera on the market that can take pictures of firework. (I'm sorry I can't remember the brand name of the camera.) I was told the camera coast $300.00. I was shown the camera and it look very easy to use. I have not gotten yet, because it is expensive. I have to weight until I have the money to buy it. I'm sure if you go to a camera store and tell then exactly what you want the camera to be able to do. They will show you the camera. Good luck.

    Camera Re: Taking Photos Of Fireworks?

    I have taken several pictures of fireworks both at Disney and other places. You do NOT need a special camera, but an SLR or DSLR is easier to use. On these you have options for either bulb settings or long exposures. But a tripod or sturdy place to set the camera is a must because if you are taking a picture for more than a split second, everything will be blurry with the slightest of shakes. A lot of cameras have either night settings or fireworks settings which really are just extended exposures to capture more light. Hope this helps, although this is a very old post!
