Not necessarily need black card, timer with remote release will do.

if i am not wrong, the black card is to "trick" the camera to extend its shutter speed to like 12-15 seconds ?? IF i am not wrong that is.. but i dun know how much timing u will get thou...

get a remote shutter release..... black card... nahs.. forget it..

The purpose of black card is to avoid shaking/vibration recorded on photo when the mirror flap up.

I found I need a black card since my tripod is not so stable, and the remote does not prevent shake/vibration.

Some camera can do mirror up before the shutter open. This kind of camera do not need black card to avoid above problem.

Sorry, may I know how do you shoot that you did not capture any smoke (some ps required?) and also dun have one patch of light at the center of the firework.
I mostly use bulb mode with F8-F16 with around +-10sec.

Thks.

If your tripod (with camera on it) does not shake/vibrate when shutter open ==> Yes. No need black card.

i thought the black card is used for multiple exposures??
Can be anything. It is all depends on your creativity and imagination. Sometimes it is useful also to block strong bright light entering your lens, to provide black background in macro, etc.
