    I was hanging out at a show, and a storm started rolling in, so I took some pictures. I really wish I had my tripod with me, as I caught some great shots, but moved my hand a fraction quite a number of times.

    There's actually a clock tower hiding behind that tower you can see. I got some entertaining shots of it as well, though they were blurry.

    EXIF is the information your camera stores about the photo. It tells you about the focal length, Iso, aperture value, shutter speed, etc.

    I just saw a photo thread in the main forum, and decided I'd come see if anyone said anything in here. So anyways, here's everything I can say about the shoot.

    This was using a Canon SD400, handheld. I leaned against buildings and such for most the shots to help steady the camera. The lightning shots aren't perfectly crisp if you get up close, there's a little bit of motion blur. I set the camera in "auto" and turned the flash off. I love that the SD400 doesnt have much shutter lag, it helped immensely. The lightning was the kind that's up in the upper atmoshpere, and huge. It'd reach across the sky slowly, and a bolt would last 1-2 seconds. None of the lightning was audible, to give an idea how far away it really was. The framing of the photos, mixed with the "incorrect" ISO setting make the lightning look up close and personal, but it wasnt.

    The pics were long ago deleted from my memory card, so I can't get into the camera to tell the settings. Does it save them when you transport them off? Is there any way to look it up?
