Hahaha, thanks guys. But i think still can be improve. Next time will try other settings.
Just for your info. All those pictures is taken with these settings :
Shuttle : 1 seconds
F stop : 3.2
All the rest of the 2.5 seconds with 6.3 F stop over exposed
Nice pic you've got!Originally Posted by chunger
Did you zoom at all or not?
Are those you taken with continous drive??
The best reward in life is laughter

Yeah .. all using the 1 second shuttle continous Drive. I din zoom except for the last pic. I compose it vertically and give it as zoom to fit the screen.
How about shoots from you guys.... post up and share ^_^ .

Copy and paste this in ur browserhttp://chunger.topcities.com/panoram...mic_nite_m.jpg to see it.

i use F8 with shutter ranging from 2.5 to 5. so took only a few shoots. maybe some of them timing too long and so was very bright.
did you try this setting at the esplanade?
maybe will try your method, if not only can take a few shots only everytime

the busy wait is cos by the noise reduction thing which will only activate for shutter speed more than 1.3sOriginally Posted by kohweekuan
Yeah like Latmo said, 1 seconds won't get those busy Noise Reduction waiting time. But you will get some shorter trailing light. What i did was preset it a setting for 1 seconds exposure to C1 and preset another setting to C2(which have a longer exposure like 1.5 - 2.5). This you have to do the testing and adjustment b4 fireworks begin.Originally Posted by kohweekuan
Try the long exposure first. If over exposed. then just a quick dial turn to change it to the 1 seconds setting and shoot from there. Try to capture those timing. As it only take 1 seconds per shot. You will get better chance to get a good shot. When the smoke get thicker. you may need to up the Aperture one or two level up. So try to monitor a bit on the preview panel.
when you said 1 apeture up is to increase the F number or increase the hole of the aperture (confusing as bigger number = smaller hole ma)
think i must start to learn to save the setting liao.

how did you press the shutter?
1) did you press and hold it there or
2) did you press and quickly let go and let it stand alone while processing?

Well, I think I refer to higher F stop ( smaller aperture) because some time when it get too smoky... tent to get over exposed... so need to adjust your F stop to higher value.
the preview one ? i did not go on the actual dayOriginally Posted by kohweekuan
i just press and go why need to hold it there is it not b shutter
