    Default Chingay 2008

    Will be sitting probably the 10th row facing the Padang. Will be mounting my Olympus E3 with the 12-60mm SWD on a monopod between my legs (is tripod better?). E3 currently set to Auto (100-1000 ISO) and will shoot it on P mode. Is it better to set it to Appeture Mode and set it f5.6 or more as shooting will be on moving subjects during the procession? I assume the ISO will still be on Auto mode (100-1000 ISO). I guess the there's no point bringing the F36 flash. Any suggestions for the right settings for me to use.

    There is no right settings.The right thing to do is actually to brush up on your basics.

    If there is no additional lighting added, then a must have should be lens with f/2.8, a camera with at least ISO1600 to 3200 and a tripod.

    My suggestion:

    Set your E-3 to shutter priority and set it at 1/125, ISO at maybe 800, fire a few test shots and adjust accordingly. No need for flash
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    Hi, I am new to S'pore and Chingay. Could anyone tell me if its better to pay for cat 2 seats (if still available) or just go for cat 3 at $20? I would prefer cat 3 so I can move around, but guess the crowd, police and barriers could make it difficult too. I have a 17-85, 70-200 f2.8 IS and 50 1.8... Thx for any advice
