Made this video mostly because I wanted to test the external Rode microphone. Made some research in advance what camera and microphone settings to use during fireworks. The day before the fireworks I put my Peltor earmuffs on, raised the audio level on my Marantz receiver to very loud and played Howie Alex great fireworks video “Night Lights” to set the volume on Nikon and Rode. Set Nikon volume to 4.

After the first bang in the beginning of New Year’s Eve fireworks I lowered Nikon volume from 4 to 2 afraid that it was going to be louder in the end and I had chosen too high volume. Afterwards I do not think I had to lower it. Think 4 had been OK. Next time I will raise ISO, raise fps and volume to 3.
