Yea, saw those. It looks like an incredible piece of hardware. If I wasnt so tied up on sports/long range stuff I would look into it. Maybe one day if I get into doing non-sports Ill keep my 7D and grab one of these used or something. The results are just so freakin impressive.

Watch in HD. First attempt at some timelapse. Taken on the back end of a pretty intense storm this past night.

Cool video! That night was pretty wild up here in Cleveland as well. I love lightning/thunder though, as long as no other destructive force is present :p

Had my wife not shown up with food, I would have easily sat there for about an hour. The light show did not stop. It lasted for several hours since the nasty part was to our east but the back end trailed right by our place giving us that incredible light show. No thunder either.

However earlier in the day the storms hit where I worked and a few blasts shook our building which was a bit interesting. Either way, looking forward to putting thousands more clicks on the shutter doing this. Which is the only negative, means Ill have to replace that sooner but I can see myself doing more of this. Already scouting great sunrise/sunset locations. Toledo has some beautiful places, they just arent easy to find.

Like, um, lightning? :wink:

Cool video, but it's not something I'd ever attempt. After growing up in the "lightning capital of the world," I've seen enough go bad to abide by the rule of thumb for lightning......if you can see it, it's close enough to f up your world. I've had my close encounters with it, and it's the one thing I take absolutely no chances with anymore.

So exactly how many frames was that anyway?

Assuming you grew up in Florida by that comment?? lol.

Most, if not all the lightning that night was upper atmosphere, very few if any were reaching down. Plus, it was several miles to my east - moving east - but I know and respect what you just said. Its all truth. It can reach beyond a storm and if you happen be where it chooses, have fun.

It was something like...400-500 frames? Its only 15 or so minutes of footage. I think I shot like every 5 seconds.


I will say, I was sitting on a concrete porch about 2feet from a door when I took that. The camera I setup about 5ft away and I sat back on the porch. There are plenty of other things it would go for before me (multiple light poles, the apartment itself with rods on top, camera (though Id be pissed)).

I can get you more exact numbers when I get home. All images were the same length, aperture and time apart. Though Ive already refined the process a little after doing a little more research. We have more possible thunderstorms moving in tonight/tomorrow so maybe Ill have a chance to do some more timelapse. Its rather fun!

^ Interesting process, with really cool results!

Yeah, I grew up in Fort Lauderdale. When I worked at a golf course, I had several close calls with lightning, and saw some weird things happen too. I've seen rouge bolts from storms seemingly ten miles off, and I even watched one bolt bounce off three items (tree, pop-up tent, golf cart) about 15 feet from me....which was scary as hell. There was even a news story with witnesses who saw a guy on the beach watching a storm well off shore when a rogue bolt picked him up and threw him 20 feet.

Lightning really is awesome to watch, but that stuff scares the crap out of me these days. I'll never forget hauling arse off of Dollywood's ropes course a couple years back when a storm suddenly rolled in. Talk about walking around on a lightning rod! lol

Anyway, if you do happen to get more, definitely post it.

I wonder if the sag is just from trains sitting on them over time?
