I'm sorry to say that I have not been in a location that offered me wide vistas with lightning in the distance. I have taken the unit when I've traveled to Texas in Costa Rica, and even though thunderstorms were forecast, none occurred when I was there so I could not utilize the Lightning Bug™
All of the photographs that I have taken of lightning were from the front porch of my condominium. Also, the majority of photographs that I obtained were during the day or close to the twilight with only one episode of nighttime lightning. My grandson, who lives with me and also is a photographer has utilized the Lightning Bug™ at night.
The nicest part of photographing from my front porch is after I set up the camera and Lightning Bug™ and cover the lens and portions of the camera with a rain cover and turn on the unit, I can be nice and dry in my house relaxing and having a drink during the thunderstorm.
Presently, Hunts Photo, again, is having a sale on the Lightning Bug™ and it can be purchased at
The price will increase after the first of the year, but if you order now, you will be able to get the great price.
Here are some examples of photographs that my grandson than I took of Lightning.
