Re: Other tips & things to know

"SP(Fireworks) sets the lens to its hyperfocal distance at F8 (and keeps it there while zooming). Autofocus is disabled. This is nice for night shots were you don't want to bother with focusing: go to SP(Fireworks), zoom & frame the shot, switch AF to manual, go to A or M mode (set aperture to F8), and shoot."

I took some shots at Walt Disney World of the castle at night with the fireworks setting during the fireworks show - the camera looks a little out of focus - would I have been better off to use manual mode? Surprisingly, the fireworks looked great - it was just the castle that looked off.
