    Description: Colour Thunder really is a fantastic 61 shot cake, emitting beautiful bursts that go with an almighty bang! With each shot streams of white fill the sky, having vivid colourful colourful tips of yellow, green, red and purple! Alongside this is a gorgeous powder crackle effect and to top it off throughout all this happening there is a white crackling mine at floor level.
    Stunning cake!

    This cake is mad as a box of frogs and i love it for that reason.
    With the best mine effect on a cake i think i have seen to date and the varying height of the bursts makes this one of my favorites.
    Would be a great display opening piece.

    Showing the boldness of colours in Galactic Fireworks' Colour Thunder cake. The first time I saw this firework with the naked eye I was amazed. On most video examples the colour has been overwhelmed by the light output of the crackle. Such a shame about the diagonal lens flare. I've had this twice with my S4 (due an upgrade), yet most other times it has been ok. I wonder if it might have been condensation on the lens?!?! But if you're a child of the 70s and like to boogie, it's an interesting effect!

    Nigel, if you ever import more of these amazing pieces, I have a suggestion! A cake of just these colours in larger peony bursts minus all the obscuring crackle. I don't think I've seen these pinks and oranges in retail fireworks anywhere! Even the blues and greens are electric in a way others aren't. All married together they're a beautiful acid mix! It would be something no-one else on the market! As indeed all the original 61s flavours were anyway.

    My Panasonic HD Camcorder does the horizontal bright lines on bright firework stars and effects you're not alone in that respect;in fact, many single chip Panasonic HD camcorders also do the same on fireworks and bright lights in darkness. Don't worry! ;)

    I think it must have been moisture on the lens, it was a bit sleety, just starting to snow, although the wind direction was away. I've filmed displays since without the problem. Or maybe it might be the sensor sensitive to environmental conditions? Shame the S4 didn't have manual focus, as when it does achieve clarity, the detail and colour beat samsung phones since. But the green especially, and all colours in general, look more accurate in my Colour Thunder video above than other videos I've seen or taken myself.. Including my SJ4000s, which are always washed out on greens, but having used a different white balance on that ^ display, came out with a yellow tinge. I'm hoping my S7 with a wider angle lens adapter and 4k might achieve the best of all worlds.
    I still have 3x Colour Thunder(!), which will be fired as a fan, probably this Nov5th, for one last go at a perfect video.
    Ditto 3x Reign of Fire, the green again gets lost on film. I also still have 1x Galactic Storm. Those 61s were without question the best pyro I've ever bought.
