I need some recommendations on what settings to use for this. I want to drive around my area and find some of the better Christmas lights displays on homes and businesses and take pictures of them. Of course this will be at night, trying to avoid using a tripod, and just want the lights to show up, not so much the "background" as such.

Oh... wll be using my N8008 with a Promaster Spectrum 7 3.5-4.5 28-70mm lens

Any suggestions appreciated...
