    Wow! amazing how it's done.Will you be able to do this with your storm chase videos?

    i thought you would like that...................no unfortunately not....mine only goes up to 1,200 frames per sec.......them cameras are around 3,000 fps.....one day will have to get one.....but quite expensive

    no problem slowing the lightning down........but its how many frames it captures...not speed if you get my drift

    How I miss the long nights watching the radar tracking the Anvils..lol throughout the night...Must get another web cam as the old ones had its day...

    Wont be long now...I have a bonus this year with the USA Storms :)

    Looking forward to the cloud formations even if I don't see a Tornadic cloud..

    I think I will live in the Canaries this Winter as its far to long for the Storm seasons :)

    It's certainly been a long winter. I also have missed radar watching . I am glad you can feel the storms in your bones lol :lol: Let's hope that 2009 is a good storm year.

    And you have the storm chase to look forward too.

    I hope to use my new camera this year,even if it means taking pictures of some cloudscapes before the storms.
