    I've been doing some research on this tonight but thought I'd pose the question to you guys as well. What is the recommended settings for trying to take photo's of fireworks? Saskatoon has a big fireworks festival tonight and tomorrow night. Thinking I'd go see what I can capture tonight and then do it right tomorrow night :D

    The old steel bridge ocular. They have the walkway blocked on the freeway bridge. I imagine the broadway bridge and all the trails around are going to be stupid crazy. I'm thinking about being a bit farther away, near the boat house. Are you thinking of going?

    Ok I just looked at this info Jaszek gave me, but now I got another question...

    Focus to Infinity?? How do you know when you have that, how do you do it? And especially at night? I just did some reading up on it via google :D and I can't figure it out.

    infinity is usually (almost) all the way to the right (turn the focus ring left)
