Nice efforts! it was a disaster for me. Too greedy and missed everything. Was hoping to shoot from flyer and I mis-predict the timing. Thought the fireworks will occur closer to 8pm but instead it started around 7:35pm. End up fireworks were over just when my capsule starts going up.

Sorry to hear that. You can try it next year SEA games. Shooting from flyer will there be any reflection and you mean the flyer will stop for you to shoot fireworks. I have never experience shooting fireworks from flyer.

It's ok. Was trying my luck. Learn a lot of lessons. Shooting from flyer not so straightforward due to the rotation.
It will be a battle to keep the exposure long enough to capture the bursts vs keeping exposure short enough to minimize blurring from the cabin movement. Depending on the FoV, so far I see its about 2 to 4 seconds, max. Need more experiments. And you have to make sure surroundings are decently exposed since its already dark.


- Tons of reflections. Gotta shift the tripod around. Bearing in mind other guests within as well (including kids). Good chance to try out lens skirt if the MO at the General Photography Talk section goes through.
- It's not as empty as the papers make it out to be. At least not on a Friday evening. Streams of visitors were continually coming in. Most dining cabins were also full.
- Sportshub is at kinda awkward direction as its more towards the corner of the cabin.
- One round of the flyer ~30min. Of this, I think there's only a 15-20min window where you can shoot. Rest of the time either too low or obstructed by the flyer structure/other cabins. Unless you know the exact timing and location of fireworks, gonna be quite risky.

I've seen photos of fireworks shot from the flyer so its not impossible, just more challenging.
