    Esplanade bridge tends to get alot of smoke.. (based on previous experiences of SFF)..
    Hmm.. since the smoke is from the fireworks. To me it doesnt matter where it's taken from le. Anyway where would you suggest that it'll be less smoke?

Details coming up. those going should be prepared for rain and very crowded area.
    May I also add that, in my humble opinion that, though your camera need not be DSLR, but it at least have to have some manual features to control the apeture and shutter speed.

    or were you expecting Benjamin Sheares bridge instead??
    Benjamin shears bridge would be a nice place for shooting, But to capture the whole fireworks you'll need a ultra wide angle such as 10-22 for our 1.6x crop dslr. Unless you dont mind taking tight shoots of the fireworks.

    what kynoe say is true, however doesnt necessary to have slow shutter speed to take fireworks, you can use fast shutter speed to freeze the action or place multiple pics together using ps.

    you'll need a sturdy tripod, or at least stable, a cable release is recommended too. maybe a small torch to shine when you're packing your stuff after the fireworks.. Oh ya.. and a wide angle lens if you prefer to take the whole show rather than close shoot.

    hi andrew, thanks, I'm using my faithful kit lens at widest 18mm and try 50mm lens (though might not be a good idea)... anyway, we're newbies

    can help test the tripod, can take sharp pics with your cam and kit lens? if does not resonate, should be able to take my cam. Cheers!
