    Yah, if my digicam has a night mode, would it be better for me use the night mode and tripod?? Cos I have not tried the aperture and shutter speed yet and it might not turn out well.........

    Night mode is just an auto-programmed mode that usually have a very small f-stop and a longer shutter speed, that's all. I think ultimately you still have to understand a little basics of photography, and rely less on the modes.

    highly recommend u study shutter piority mode (if your digi has it), and not rely on night mode.

    Here's 2 shots I took during last year's NDP. digicam on AUTO(!!), cos I never bothered to go understand shutter/aperture piority modes.





    Point is, even auto can, so no need to consider night-mode, but which mode will give the best results?

    P.S. - composition is an entirely different thing of course, so don't use my examples... hehe..

    I have shutter priority mode as well.......so for night shots, it should be slower shutter speed, provided I have a tripod??

    Prepare a black card, cover your view finder,F/16-22, set it to bulb and hold on to your cable release .. then... (of course Tripod is a must)

    ISO preferrably at ISO 50-100... , use the black card to cover your lens when there wasn't any firework or when it was about to burst...

    Do 2-4 exp. of fireworks together with a single shot, u see great result returning from lab. Try this on negative or slide....

    About Digital??? Yet to find out ... it should work the same... anyone to share?

    The aperature setting will depends on what kind of effect you are aiming for.

    That's what I did with my slr, but dont think prosumer digicams have bulb mode loh...

    If he sets the shutter piority to say 4 secs, then suay suay on the 3.6th second got another fireworks launch... hard to say the results lah, but could spoil the pic. Can he interrupt the piority? should he? does 0.4secs matter? Am I thinking too much???

    Ideal situation if there was a preview, and we can time down roughly when & how long each burst is...

    Ah well, I did say ideal~
