Anyone been to the NDP last year or recently for the NE1 rehearsal?
What are the 2 lenses that will be more comfortable for airshow display and fireworks?

I watch the NDP 07 from the Merlion area. Brought a wide angle zoom and a 400mm prime. The 400mm is too long a focal length. Low light is also a factor during the flypast unless you have a fast lens.

Bring a wide zoom lens 16/17/18-50/70/80mm and another one with a 300mm is best. A tripod + remote shutter best for fireworks.

Anyway, I didn't enjoy it as much while shooting and watching that time ;p.

This year I got tickets for the NDP and probably decide to kept my cam at home.;) Kinda hassle with the large crowd to take pics.

This is my first time attending so won't want to waste the opportunity to take this event.
Next year then I leave my gear at home. :)
