Re: Fireworks How do I ??????

Hello again .
I think I get the idea I'll start with the settings suggested . I'm not sure if I have "Bulb mode" as i only have an EOS 450 but will have a look at the well thumbed instruction book. and confuse myself some more .

I am not 100% sure but I do think the 450 has bulb mode.

Good luck and pop back to show us the results

This will be my first time as well. Would be great if a few of us have some shots to show. Good luck And when you go down with your shutter speed, go as low as you can as in seconds, after that bulb mode pops up.

*ONLY* a Canon 450?? It's a brilliant camera - dont put it down!!!
Anyway, if you turn the mode dial on top to "M" then spin the wheel, keep going up the exposure times, right at the end you will get "Bulb". Thats the one you need. Good luck!
