    got a few pictures from the fireworks. was standing near Gluttons bay. however, the pics were bad due to two things - 1) front filter got wet, due to wind blown rain. pictures showing water droplets. was shooting at f13, so the droplets are really obvious. 2) fireworks were really smoky.

    firework blocked by IR ? i thought the IR was quite a distance from the flyer. I thought can see stamford Hotel from the marina barrage roof top when i was shooting the dragon boat race last 2 week.

    i walked off right before the rain, bored, and was thinking whether it's like a burst every 5 mins..
    when i reach the entrance of esplanade rain came..

    first aid kit sadly for humans

    jokes aside, you can always improvise like how cthep2 mention .

    i used plastic bags to shield my camera .filter wet nevermind as long as lens still stay dry.

    i forgot to mention, i also have a scotch tape in my bag for emergencies .. and one such use for it ?

    tissue .. lots of it .. cover the barrel of the lens till the filter. use a plastic bag... tear a hole in the bottom then "attach" it to the barrel and tape it...


    walah! cheapskate but good method to "waterproof" your camera
    Nikon D7000 : Tamron 17-50VC f2.8, SB-900
    Nikon D90 : Nikon 18-105 VR, SB-600

    Was there from 4.30 pm. Here's all I have:


    Rather than going home empty handed after camping there for so long, I just stand in the rain a while longer while everybody else with camera (and without) ran for cover. Other than the raindrops visible on the lens, I guessed it was worth that few seconds wait.

    Plastic bag, 5D, 17-40 (weather sealed)

    It is always easier to plastic bag the camera than the lens, hence my partially-sealed camera, and fully sealed lens

    Too bad about me though.....din bring BIG garbage bag so kena soaked..haha!

    Anybody remember using garbage bag as raincoat during NS days?

    Definitely worth it! I got some shots worth using as well.

    The fireworks firing platform is floating right in front of the IR, that's why those from Marina Barrage will not get a good view of the fireworks.
