Fireworks..

I took some pictures of fireworks tonight and thought you'd like to see. These were all taken on my Canon S2 IS with Fireworks Mode on.

Happy 4th of July!

Those are great. It is a lot harder to shoot fireworks than one thinks at first. What settings did you use? I'm curious.

Looks like many of the ones I saw last night -- only you'll be able to look at them whenever you want! Nice images, nice website display.

I actually mentioned the settings I used in my original post.

I turned my Canon S2 IS on, I set the dial to SCENE mode and changed it to FIREWORKS. That's it.

I'm very happy with the camera. It's got a 12x optical zoom.

I'm thinking Janet may be interested in the F stop and time settings. You should be able to access the settings in playback mode. Nice pics by the way.

Yeah I have no clue about F stop and stuff like that because I'm not a professional, but lemme try to find out.

I hope this is right.. It says F8.0.. does that sound right?! I just turned on Fireworks mode and started shooting pics. That's all I really know. They came out good, so I didn't try to fool with any of the settings.

I do know that after I pressed the button it took 1 to 1.5 seconds to actually snap the picture, so I had some shots where I missed completely, but I was surprised how well I did. I took about 66 shots total. Those were the best.
