    Very cool! Much better than I've ever been able to capture fireworks.

    Thanks guys! ... I was really happy the way they turned out too.
  5. Looks great, fun times.

    I would use a little cropping however and get rid of the extra stuff in the foreground as much as possible.

    Excellent! Looks like the LCD isn't an issue here. :tongue: What lens were you using?

    LCD - definitely a non issue. Focus peaking helped tons. I used the kit lens (40mm XS) with manual focus.
