NEX-5N for Disney!

Just got a NEX-5N a couple of days ago. Got it with the anticipation of taking tons of (hopefully great) pics at WDW during our Nov. trip!

And I just found this forum and I can't wait to read through all the posts to learn all the tips you guys have. This is great! I'm coming mostly from and point-and-shoot background.

Just wanted to say "hi"!

Tomorrow I will be making crawfish and corn soup. Whenever I go on vacation the one thing I miss from home is the food.
Can't decide if we're going Saturday or Sunday. Now we're trying to decide if when we leave Ponchatoula, are we going to drive in to Nawlins and go to the French Quarter festival! I think I'm gaining weight just thinking about all the food I'm going to eat this weekend!

I blame all this good food down here for my weight! Monday I made Crawfish pasta and last night crawfish and corn bisque. God I love my seafood. The FQF sounds good this weekend.

Right guys - i've only just found this thread (I've spent far too long over in the creative disign section!) and I leave for the world in less than 2 weeks. I'm a point and shoot girl, but own a Sony Alpha 350 which I've always been meaning to learn how to use since purchase!!

i will probably be using the point and shoot or the alpha in auto mode to capture our family pics, but would also like to "play" with the alpha and try something new.

Can anyone pass on any tips on how to get it out of auto mode and attempt to take some good pics please? I love the blurred effect in the Expedition Everest pics. Can anyone dumb down for me how that is achieved?!

Also any tips on taking fireworks pics?!

Any advice greatly received!! thanks, Gina

If your talking about my shot of the entrance to EE. To get the movement of the people you will need a Neutral Density Filter for the daytime in order to get a slow shutter speed. I use a Hoya ND400 (9 stop) to get a shutter speed around 1-10 seconds. I like this affect because it shows the crowds and flow of foot traffic.
