Default Digital Cam How To: Capture Laserbeams like a PRO

If anyone else here is like me...
Their Digital camera has been set to Auto since the day it was bought.

Not exactly the best setting for capturing laser beam pictures.


My camera is a Sony DSC-T50...and it has more settings than you can shake a stick at.

So far the ISO setting on my camera has given the best results...and I will try to post a picture.

My camera also has a "Fireworks" setting that sounded perfect...
I need to try that one next.


So lets all share our best settings...help each other to capture some really cool looking Photos!!!

I have a sony as well Most sony's are the same. Just set it to P or M mode and then use the arrow keys to make the exposure time longer. 2-5 seconds is good. Although outside in a dark area you may need up to 10 seconds for a good shot.

what do the "ISO" settings do? i don't seem to be able to increase the exposure time, or turn off auto focus?

I just used the "fireworks" option and It gave me at least a 2 second exposure time, perfect for capturing elusive [s]fireworks[/s] lasers. It worked brilliantly. Check out some of the pictures that I am posting in this section to see what it can do.

Happy Photo-taking
