  1. #1

    Default Japan Tokyo Disneyland Fireworks

    Dear ClubSNAP members,

    I would like to ask what lens do i need if i want to capture the disneyland fireworks in December? What precautions do I need to take if I am bringing my eos 500d to a cold place?

    I would appreciate any feedbacks. Thank You.

    the cam will work fine.

    you can try some fast lenses,

    and if you're nearer to the castle can use a 85mm f/1.4,

    but if you're further away by alot (say at at world bazaar or tomorrowland),

    you can use the 70-200 as well, shouldn't be a problem.

    you can also try bumping up your ISO, and using a tripod will help.

    guard your camera well and makes sure it doesnt get stolen in the crowd

    You can shoot fireworks exactly the same way you shoot in Singapore Typical settings: ISO 200 - 400, shutter speed 1-2secs, Aperture not important....set it to suit your exposure. Shooting Fireworks is not equal to Night photography.....so high ISO is not required. A wide angle lens is preferred as compared to 85 / 70-200

    However, there is going to be a crowd, so a big tripod to stand tall above everyone else is important. A remote trigger is a good to have.

    yup, trigger is good, and a tripod is imp

    and as others have warned, you have to guard your cam well,

    however Japan is definitely a more honest country then others but better to be safe then sorry.

    hmm, will u be there on a weekend or weekday?

    If the weather is bad - strong wind, rain, etc - then Disneyland might issue an announcement to cancel the fireworks. So it all depends on your luck.

    thank you all for your inputs. will definitely bear it in mind.

    i have the tripod. now short of remote as well as a good lens to capture.

    will source for a wide angle lens now.

    im newbie here.

    thank you so much people.

    i will be there on the 24 and 25 dec. weekdays. but i guess it will be crowded.

    :Later,
    8pm usually.

    i'd place myself near world bazaar's ice-cream palour,

    or maybe at tommorowland's galactic pizza port.

    if you wanna get up close to the fire-works, outside the queen of heart's banquet hall will be nice.

    Hi all,

    Not sure if u guys had problem bringing in tripod to the parks recently but it seems like it's not really allowed...

    I didn't have any problem during my trip in 2006 to DisneySea though...

    Was there in June, no problem at all.

    Japanese are technically ok and easygoing, doubt they'd care anyway.

    dont get too close to the castle. think there will be water sprays, if I can still recall. Stand some distance away from cinderella castle but facing the castle would be good enough. Tripod recommended. Be sure to catch the pyrotechniques at Disneysea too. Enjoy.

    oh. if you're going during the christmas period, you must bring!

    it's beautiful there, it would be such a waste not to bring your camera...

    i used a D40, 17-35mm f/2.8 for the entire trip.

    for other things there such as photos of the restaurant, taken with my trusty nikon coolpix 5700 (or sth, it's 5.1 megapixels, quite old but very hardy).

    Ah ha! Will take note of your advice...so far lady luck not on my side when it comes to fireworks in the parks...hahaha. Maybe it's the period which i was there...

    But i did enjoy the light parade in Disneyland.

    Hopefully I can catch some fireworks there for my next trip.

    my cam survive the -5 deg temp when i was in korea's everland.

    but my el-cheapo wireless remote trigger didn't. refuse to trigger the shutter release when expose to the cold for too long.

    in the end, i panic, gotta manually depress the shutter release button on my cam.
