    How do you guys get pics in the dark of your candled eggs? I've tried every button on my camera in unison even. LOL I know i can video them real well, but can't figure out with the camera, which is a canon powershot BTW. Jen...[​IMG]

    My camera has a night shot setting on it. Works great in the dark.

    I shut the flash off and I use the button for closeup pics (I can't remember what it's called but, it the flower one-macro, I think?) and the auto setting.
