Snapped these pics earlier, man my thumb hurts now -_-






My 2 Favorites:





Bet you never thought of how it looks every time you light up a smoke.

All of this on just a "pocket camera" :thumbs up: (hacked firmware ftw)

Hej,
That'd be the only good reason to smoke maybe for me ^^
But damned smokers always steal each other lighters anyway...

Nice anyway, but there are such pics already on the wiki (too lazy to check right now sorry). Yours a bit sharper, but you add more sharpen afterwards, or what ?

Hej,
Okej, but how come first two have their EXIFs and 2 others don't ?
Could you tell us the "real" settings too (overridden ones you set).

the last two dont because i rotated the image on photobucket and apparently that clears the exif. Even so i am unsure of the true shutter speed used on the last 2. on the first 2 i just set the exposure for 1 second, the last ones involved using the motion detection script and shutter speed override at 1/100,000th of a second. Thats how it caught the actual sparks without streaming out, it froze the sparks with the fast shutter speed.
