    Some of my RTW shirts do not have enough room in the cuff for my latest acquisition.... does anyone use button extenders? It seems, on the face, like a good idea that could go horribly wrong.

    No technique on this one. Tritium gas filled tubes make it bright all the time.

    On your PAM, you can get a good pic if you expose the dial to bright sunlight then take it into a completely dark room. Sunlight seems to charge the luminova best.

    You could also try increasing the exposure in order to let the light in for a longer period of time.

    I like this lume pic I took--just regular point and shoot, but did a countdown.

    - no photo trickery, but the dial was charged for a couple of seconds with a small Surefire torch...
