    if you can do this with a p&s i don't know, but the norm for lightning shots (im assuming thats what you mean) is to just put the camera in manual, set the f/8 and the shutter to bulb untill you get a flash

    I really can't think of another way to do it other than long exposures and a lot of finger crossing.
