    Also, you should also give your 50 f/1.8 a try... if you're not shooting insects, small items may work since you do not require thin DOF. min focus dist for 50mm f/1.8 is about 0.45m leh... This is a pretty sharp lens that's why some peeps are converting it for macro photography by adding a raynox and extension tube...

    Ok guys. Your suggestions noted with thanks! My 35/1.8 is the closest-focusing lens I have now, at about 0.2_ m MFD.
    extension tube... hmmm never thought of that
    Exploring! :)

    I'd try all the lenses if I were you, since it's not about tiny insects anyway. Try until you've exhausted all possibilities then worry about what other lenses to buy. I think I can even use my 10-24 for product shoot - gonna try after I finished building my next model kit...

    Originally I thought the foundation kit is everything you will need to mount filters. You still need to get the adapter ring to mount onto the lens and the in turn the foundation kit will be mounted onto it.

    I think this quote jeezuinn got from cp is actually pretty decent. Quite comparable.
    Check out these parts from a uk site. I have checked, they don't deliver to sg.

    true.... the smoke kinda of giving the fireworks itself a smoke screen.

    Found someone took fireworks of vivo from Mount Faber.

    but you will loose the nice trail of pyrotechnic and the nice reflection if you shoot here.

    from the promenade, probably you can get this.

    there is a total savings of around $50 dollars and with shipping.... the savings probably half? I don't know. Probably getting it straight from cp maybe a better idea.

    Hi sorry haha! I was reading up on some research materials...

    Yes, I scouted the promenade just now (when it was still raining)... They have put up light fixtures against the railings, but in between still have space for you to view. Tomorrow there will be barges on the water where the fireworks will shoot. We could either take the promenade or head up to the rooftop.

    Bro, Hitech holder is almost same price as Lee foundation (according to my price quotes from TK). The difference lies in the adapter rings. Yes, even for Hitech you have to buy the adapter ring separate but it is slightly cheaper (around 60+ I think). Hitech holder comes with 2 slots fixed. If you want 3 slots, you need to buy the 3 slot part and replace the 2 slot part. Lee foundation you can screw on (or remove) slots one at a time, up to 3 slots are included in the foundation kit.

    To understand how different they are. See:

    Hitech and Cokin Z-pro filter holders in detail:
    http://www.jeroenvandaal.nl/hitech.php

    One thing to note, the actual filter holder by Hitech is metal. The part where the slots are should be plastic. Lee, all the parts are very hard plastic. Cokin's plastic is softer.

    not very sure on this but I would like to suggest give a thought on having the fireworks reflected off the water surface in the frame. Will going higher easier to capture this or go as low as possible be easier?

    extension tube... hmmm never thought of that
    Your 50mm is AF-D right? I can lend you the PN-11 tube, but you will need to adjust the aperture manually

    Haha. No black card. I almost forgot to bring my tripod. A part of me was sying no need to bring. Lucky the sensible part of me told me need tripod.
