    Which are the best settings to use for my Canon S3 IS to take photos of lightning?
    I´ve been told a cable remote shutter release with tripod is a must, but also that there is no cable shutter release available for the S3 IS! Is this true?

    As far as I know, there is no remote control for the S3IS.

    You can use the timer and a tripod to help with shake. If I remember right, it has 2 and 10 second timers. I would use the 2 second timer so you don't miss anything waiting for the 10.

    As for settings, I always have better luck with a longer exposure time rather than trying to time the shots, so you might try using a shutter speed of 5 or more seconds and just keep shooting until you catch a strike.

    Hopefully someone else who knows more than I do will come in and help you further.

    Good luck shooting. I love shooting lightning, but we don't get enough storms here.
