Just do a long exposure shot where you leave the camera aperture open longer than a normal shot.  I'm pretty sure most digicams have the option for doing this.

So by doing that, I can create the panorama effect so I can create some pics like the "lightsaber art"?

It's not a panorama effect (which would be a super wide picture), but more of a strobing effect.  But yeah, you too could create this lightsaber art, of which you speak.

The panorama isn't necessarily just a wide pic, that is just what it can do, I just want a picture that spans over a couple seconds instead of a micro second. But if the strobing effect does this, cool. I mean look at that pic, that picture was over at least two seconds long, the way they did all that stuff with their sabers, it's just cool.

those mulitple generators out there that can be used in movies to create the lightsaber look and sound. flashes and sound effects can also be added if you have a good movie editing program.

You know it doesnt seem to matter what kind of camera the Fx lightsabers are captured on they all look fricken awsome. The look on peoples faces when they see footage, pictures etc is a peach.

Hey its me again......
                                I would have to say the luke ep 5 and anakin ep 3 are the brightest by far....luke's however is a bit more of a light blue color while anakin's is more of a royal blue.  The best thing though is the volume of the anakin saber is about 2 times as loud as the luke or any other saber i have for that matter.  If your going to buy just 1 saber the anakin ep 3 is the one to get.....small size, bright blade, loud flippin volume.  The only drawback is the weight and heft isnt there like the others. It feels a little more "plastic" even though it is mostly metal.  On another note i would have to say other than the blades my favorite part of these sabers is the sound authenticity.  When you power up luke's ep 6 it sounds exactly like the scene in rotj where luke turns himself in to vader. "i see you've constructed a new lightsaber" the power up sound is like a crack of lightning......very authentic to the sound in the movie.  The same can be said for BOTH vader sabers...ep 4 and 5 both being slightly different and very sinister. the only one thats a bit weak in the sound is the original aotc anakin however the motion sensors in that one work VERY well.  I can just hope that the windu saber will have the exact power up sound as when he puts it up to jango's throat on geonosis. then my hopes will be fufilled. I am slightly worried after reading the review but being the first saber he (the author) ever had i think his expectations were probably high.  Anyhow i will try to post a link to an MPG showing the differences in sound for everyone when i get a chance..... but first i need to check my doorstep for the 200'th time this week for my windu....lol  :o

Especially next to the Windu blade, when you get it.

Here are some pics of the Vader ANH hilt I took, I will post some pics of it turned on later (as I dont have enough batteries for the camera and the saber  :-[) If anyone wants more close up pics of it, just ask.
