I am interested to shoot lighting .
I understand there are two ways:
1. Keep the camera on manual mode and set it at continuous shots at 30 sec so that the camera keeps on shooting non stop. As and when the lighting sticks it will capture.
2. There is a lightning trigger to be attached on the hot shoe of the camera and it will trigger as soon as lightning sticks.
My question is: Which is better way and give 100 % results. If it is better to use a lightning trigger which brand would you recommend. I am told that Stepping stone from Colorado is a good one but it is too expensive ($300+) . Could someone please suggest an alternative brand . Thanks,
