Lightning shoot with EX and NanoFlash

Hi all. I've just touched down in Tucson Arizona for a few days of storm chasing. Got a great forecast for monsoon storms so I'll be putting all my kit to work capturing desert thunderstorms. I'll be using an EX1 with a NanoFlash making full use of the cache record function and 100Mb/s codec. I also have a PDW-700. I have a blog going on my website if you want to follow the action over the next few days, along with updates on how the kit works.

Crossing my fingers that the lightening continues so you get some great shots. Just don't get too close! :) (good luck!)

Frustrating day. Tooo much rain. No amazing shots today, all spoilt by rain. Have to say I love the NanoFlash. So easy to use.

I was in Dallas a few weeks ago and shot a thunderstorm & lightning from my hotel balcony. This is a still frame from that footage.

Nice Bolt!

The monsoon played ball today. Got some good footage, including a very dramatic storm that was beautifully lit orange by the sunset as it popped out lightning bolts. I have posted some clips and pictures on the blog.
