Extremely inefficient, and generally feels laggy.
Canon has a mirror lockup setting in live view to avoid this. I don't know about Nikon.

Love the pic! When do we get the story?

ETA: I was impatient. Clicked on the photo link and found it How is it that the tallest man in the world will always come and stand RIGHT in front of someone with a camera?!

Sorry, I meant to say, please click on the photo for the story.

And yes, it is always the tallest man right in front! At least this time he didn't put his child on his shoulders with their Goofy hat on!

I don't know, but that guy is a real jerk! What's more impressive is that not only is he the tallest man in the world, he's also a time traveler. How else can it be that he stands in front of me and other people at the same time?

I bought a wireless before my trip last year. The button was compressed at some point in route and ran the battery down. So after setting up on the Poly beach (great spot, tripod, new 60D, lounge chair, Mai Tai, dead wireless battery), I had to take fireworks shots the hard way... with mixed results. Never again!!

I have a RF wireless remote for my D7000 that has a small component (which is the receiver for the wireless control) that connects directly to the camera with a short cable. There's a shutter release on that part as well. Even if the battery is dead, the button on the wired portion will still work. It was only about $35 or so from B&H — I'll try to post the name of it here tomorrow.

I love everyone's firework photos. This was one of the first I took with my point & shoot - no tripod either!

It's been a little while... I'm pretty sure this was with the kit lens.

From our trip last year. (At the time taken with a canon SX30is - it has since been replaced with an SX40HS)

Wow! Awesome pics! So who wants to volunteer to give me some tips and tricks to getting such great shots? Do you really set up your tripod on main street? I just imagine someone tripping and knocking the whole thing over Getting some great FW shots is one of my goals for our trip this summer.

Thanks!
