    For sunrise, need to reach the spot by 630am latest. Advise you to reach earlier to pick your spot. Quickly setup tripod & camera. I tried shooting sunrise from Changi Beach Park. not every morning you'll be able to view sunrise from there due to weather, so don't be disappointed if the sunrise didn't come up.

    I used manual exposure, f/8 to f/16, slow shutter on tripod and keep at your camera base ISO.

    info: When you're on tripod, turn off IS or VR on your lens, manual focus to near infinity. You can check Live View to adjust your focus.

    I don't have faith in the shutter cable remote anymore since it spoils on me. I used the timer in the camera. Usually I set 2 sec delay.

    If your camera supports "delayed exposure", use it too. What it does is to basically impose a delay after the mirror flaps open. The delay will allow the vibrations created by the mirror flap to settle down before making the exposure.

    In lens stabilization and vibration reduction.

    On your Sony it's super steady shot (SSS) you need to turn it off when doing long exposure else you might get blur images
