Is your new camera 12 mp's? It will be huge then. Do you know how to make them smaller? I always make mine smaller whe nI upload them and it goes much faster. I did it in photoshop, but I know other programs do it as well. Probably whatever program your camera came with. You can probably make them 50% smaller to uplad to photobucket.

I think its a 10.1 mp. I am still learning this camera and it is driving me nuts!!! I have messed with it for the past 45 minutes to a setting to take pictures of fireworks when we go back. lol

Fireworks are hard to get, and honestly I think the fireworks setting are dumb. The way to get a good picture is to have a tripod, so the camera has no movement. Now 99.9% of people do not bring one to Disney, so the next best step is to be sure to hold the camera as still as possible. If you are using a fireworks setting or even auto, the shutter is most likely open for a longer time, many any movement at all will cause blur. So if you can even prop it on a fence or trash can to keep the camera from moving, that will help.

Or the MIL meltdown and I am sure while that happened my face was as bright red as a lobster!!! Boy, I have to do this TR really soon or I am gonna bust from all the things that happened!

I did wish that I had after but a lot of time you had a character or we had one at our table. I didn't see any meltdowns at your table and we had to walk past your table to get our food.

I think someone already said this but for fireworks the best thing to do is put the camera on a tripod. You can get a 12-inch tripod for a small camera so it's not so bulky to pack into a bag. Then figure out which setting slows down your shutter speed the most and you'll get some great fireworks shots!
