Posted:I love when it has the 2.5 second trails so you can see the light with the persistence of vision... what setting/camera/effects are best for this? Thanks!
P.S. The cheaper the better... thanks!

Posted:Personally I reckon I'd put it up to the highest FPS you can shoot at, and with a pretty fast shutter so that the trails are as short as possible.

I prefer to see the smoothness and flow of the spinner, rather than the trails. Also it's nicer to be able to see what's actually happening smile

Assuming it's dark (since you said flowlights), I'd say put the iso up as high as you can go without things getting overly grainy, then adjust the shutter speed to suit.
