    How do I make it so my camera will catch more light durning quick lightning strikes? I would like it to be so I can see the strike rather than a white screen flash. I have a Sony Hand-Cam DCR-TRV280 NTSC.

    Probably a combination of iris and shutter adjustments. You'll want to close your iris more than usual so the rest of the sky isn't as blown out (differentiating the sky from the actual bolt). That'll probably make the most difference, but also try adjusting your shutter (not sure which way, maybe slower?).

    The only thing is I don't know how much control you have over those aspects on your camera. :)
