Fireworks

Well I did a search on fireworks and didn't find much help on settings for shooting fireworks so I hope some one can help.

July 4th will be here soon, and I'm looking for suggestions on settings for my HVR-A1U for shooting fireworks.

Thanks

I'm interested in this topic too... now that we're closer to Independance Day, maybe some people will chime in with their tips. Here's what I'm planning to do:

- Lock the focus at infinity
- Lock the exposure at 0db gain then adjust accordingly as the show starts
- Unplug the XLR module's AIS connector so the camera uses its onboard stereo mic set... I'll pick up a lot of crowd noise anyway so I would rather have it as a stereo ambiance.

Any other suggestions?
