wut it do
fires your camera when it "sees" lighting
329 bucks to capture lightning? wtf?
Trial and Error seems cheaper.
I made something similar. an AM detector connected to the camera.
The camera misses the initial strike but gets any successive ones. an optical detector would be faster but not by much, the main problem is the 10-20ms shutter lag of the cheaper dslrs.
Its kinda funky but you have better luck with trial and error.
oh yeah, it cost me about $10 to build.
Trial & error, thanks though.
longer exposure + luck
Seriously... Just do 10-20 second exposures...
I just setup to do 5 second exposures continuous so it never misses much but 100ms or so in between. usually i do -1 stop ev too
If you do longer exposures, you could get some awesome shots with like 10 lightning strikes all together. it's pretty cool. Try it sometime.
