    So how to get from you if I really want? Batteries included with the adapter? If not, I need to know what type of battery I have to get for it.

    using a black card to block light from falling onto the sensor, there will be no recording of light. so it is as if shutter is close. when u remove the black card, it will resume recording.

    it is an analogy to tell the sensor what to record and what not to record.
    Hmm... I just tried out but the recording will start once you press the shutter button. During the shutter press, it will not capture anything even when I move to an object unless I release the shutter button in BULB mode.

    Did I do something wrong here?

    u should be able to shoot in bulb mode mah.
    when u press shutter, the mirror flips up and u can see the sensor.
    when u release, the mirror flips back into position.

    u can verify this by shooting in bulb mode, without lens being mounted.

    Yes. But in your black card explaination, you point out that the black card will help block lights into the sensor and when the black card is removed, it will resumed recording. This is what confused me as I tried with a black paper but the recording starts immediately when I press the shutter in BULB mode.

    I still a newbie in this so please forgive me if I get anything wrong.

    taken from <here>. read the last 3 para.


    When a new round of shells is launched, wait for them to get up to the height where others have been going off, then open the shutter with the camera set on "bulb." Use a cable release so you can do so without touching the camera body to prevent movement. Close the shutter when you think you've recorded what you want. Assuming that the only source of light is the exploding fireworks, the black sky will not record in the image. As mentioned, you will generally find that exposures of several seconds will give you good coverage but you may want to try up to thirty seconds to see what happens.

    Another interesting option is to shoot double exposures. Since it is night, there shouldn't be much ambient light, making this easier than it might seem. Just leave your shutter open and cover the front of the lens with something dark like a piece of black cloth or even a baseball cap. When another burst is about to go off, uncover the lens to allow it to add to the exposure already recorded. Be careful not to actually touch the lens though to avoid blurring due to vibration.

    And lastly, in amongst your keepers, be prepared to get a lot of shots that don't come out quite the way you had hoped. If you are shooting digital, you should have at least some sense of how things are going by referring to the images on your camera LCD, but if you are shooting film you'll have to rely at least in part on faith. There's a lot of guesswork and trial and error involved in getting good fireworks shots. This makes sense since one of the big draws that fireworks have is their surprise factor. The shells go up and with anticipation you await what you know must come next. But no matter how much you think you know when they will go off, you will sometimes be wrong. When you least expect it, they will explode across the sky with colors and patterns that will amaze the kid in you. It's part of the thrill of the experience, and part of the challenge of photographing it.
