    It's a photographic tool, and all are good!
    Right, i should qualify that Canon users are the ones that hate it. Thereís so much bashing of it because of the High ISO, versus the 450, 550, 7D etc. Say that itís turning out watercolour or blur images.

    At least iíve mostly got round it by by shooting Raw without NR and doing judicious post-processing! Anyway itís ok for me lah, at least I learn alot by working around limitations

    Don't think we'll be moving from the first location.
    Vision is more important than gear

    Since we are just shooting at location 2, we can park the not so legal road area just beside the meeting point, as we can see our cars .... so we can lookout for the people in white

    But not sure if alot of people attending the event across will also park there

    I will head to the 'less than legal' spots along Tanjong Rhu road and park there.
    If you're coming from ECP, exit Fort Rd and then soon after make a left turn into Tanjong Rhu Rd, past Dunman High and S'pore Swimming Club. The parking area is closest to Pebble Bay condo. There's an alternative access, with a new bridge linking Tanjong Rhu to National Stadium. Can drive over from Stadium (eg. Kallang Macs) side.
    Exploring! :)

    if I manage to leave office on the dot, I can reach by about 6pm. But more realistically will be closer to 630pm.

    even though I'm leaving my present job, but I must not look too eager to get out of there!

    all the best to you! !!

    Just remember one thing about tripods:
    It's better to save up a bit more and get the one you really need, rather that 'waste' the money getting a lower-end model which you can't sell off afterwards.

    So many people scrim on tripods, then put then heavy heavy Full Frame DSLR. A rough wind and your $XXXXX gear comes smashing down.

    Investing in expensive, "premium" tripods is overrated, really. The hobbyist seldom requires anything beyond a Manfrotto

    I din say those expensive types obviously. I was referring to those cheapo no brand tripods, where people think they can cut corners so they get those.
