I had to buy a cord that plugs in to my Canon 50D. The gizmo has a sensor that is triggered by lightning. It was only $25, all the other ones I looked at were $75+.

The lightning strikes and the camera takes a picture.

I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.
