    i think for Fz5 is to use the focus button[trash bin button] to 'lock the focus'. i think this was explained in the manual under fireworks mode

    Best place to take?

    Take reference from those who had already gone there lor...

    You can find some very good locations with lots of creative ways to take nice pics there...

    black card technique is good but need a few trial for good exposure. I suggest to use inifinite continuous shoot with remote shutter.

    Try to set to the highest f-stop (I think it is F8 for FZ5), think 2 second is just right for the exposure...

    In order to do it this way, I guess you will have to switch to manual mode...

    Focus can be activated by "half press shutter release" or "focus button".

    The diff is "Focus Button" will memorise the focus dist for MUTIPLE shots. And, shot to shot time will become faster. It almost act like a manual focus.

    JD,
    thanks so much. took the below shots with ur advice on setting. Took only 15 shoots in abt 3mins.

    pic size down 600X400 pixels to d/l........sizing down will degrade the pic rite.
    anyone got better advice on d/l so pic will not degrade more.

    Any comments are welcome...........

    thanks again for your comments & advice

    Aiyo, dun say that...we are people who love photography, sure need to share share what we know what...by sharing I also learn from you...

    Keep up the good work! Got more than 10 days of firework from now, so, take more...try to take with some front scene (like Merlion or something), don't zoom...you will find it nicer that way, not purely fireworks, but fireworks with Singapore landmarks!

    Don't fear if you fail, most important thing is to find out why you fail, what mistake you make, and take the next opportunity to perfect it.

    I always like to say this: "Practice make perfect!"

    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.
