    Thanks man. Will PM you if I confirm going...and if its not too heavy for you.

    I do have a question, albeit a newbie one. Tot of asking in Newbies Coner but since we already at the topic...
    When I shoot at night...my camera is really sensitive to shake (thats why need tripod) and objects moving (which I understand is due to the longer shutter speed)...so if the fireworks go up...its not really going to stay stationary up there so how can I still get sharp images as shown by the many experts here?

    shutter clock @ 1" to 3" max if sharpness and BG correctly expose is the priority for u ,you can try even more faster speed like 1/10 , 1,20 but yr foreground will be underexpose
    ... advise from a non expert thats me

    anyway, am preparing for the next fireworks shoot, i.e, on 06/08. that's when the Singapore Fireworks Festival begins. will be shooting for all the 4 days!

    for everyone who came and added extra weight to the bridge
    hey lets go shoot again together i am sure some of us here are game for a few more try and practise ! lets coordinate again when the date is near ... its better to shoot with a bunch of friends rather then shooting alone maybe we could try the plot of land this time

    BG as in background you mean?
    Wonder if a faster shutter like 1/10 or 1/20 will result in less light going through the shutter...maybe can compensate by using a larger aperture? Sdaly though, the ranges available in my S5500 is limited.

    range as in zoom or ??? usually i will use the widest end to do wide angle , if u are focusing on the firework then ur shutter speed can be much faster as u are directly metering the bright firework , just remeber this a wide aperture yr fire work will looks abit fatter while a smaller one let say f11 yr firework will looks thinner and sharper imo . Just decide for yrself which is the kind of effect u want to achieve

    yeah... if can find an unobstructive plot of land (and not too muddy too), game on. was wondering have you guys tried going to the carpark of High Street Centre to shoot. from this vantage point of view, you'll get the Parliament and the old Supreme Court for foreground. of course, the fireworks will be in the background above these buildings.

    oh, my frens were suggesting going back to the bridge again for one of the nights. this time around, will be shooting from a different angle.

    I think I have the same problem with fotopic. Maybe they just want you to pay then can get sharper image.

    Yes, I'm still awake, can't get to sleep after a game of badminton.

    I have checked my fireworks shots last year, the settings were f8.0 3-5 seconds. Don't know if go to f16 would make it better?

    Okie...so the part about using a faster shutter speed and having less light going in...to compensate I just just the wide end of my zoom so that the aperture is at its largest to allow more light to go into the shutter...correct?

    By the way I mean ranges as in like shutter speed ranges, aperture ranges etc...

    How much did you get it for?

    I reckon we need a cable release too (its to prevent any shake on your camera rather than using your finegrs to press the shutter isnt it?)...you use it?
