    As mentioned... You can only try to get by with quick captures of the fireworks bursts.

    Try 1/125 sec in manual mode with say f8 or so in hyperfocal focusing. Try it out and see if it gives u anything nice.

    One question though, do you guys usually shoot in portraits or landscape?

    Always have the issue of where exactly the fireworks will appear and how high they can climb...

    up to you... dun haf to follow the trend, but I normally shoot in landscape.

    As for where they will be, it's more of guesswork. But after the first volley... you'd know exactly and can correct accordingly.
