Sydney Mardi Gras 2007

Last week, I accomplished an iconic aussie experience of an ocean swim at the Manly Wharf Hotel Ocean Swim, this week I attended the world famous Sydney Gay Mardi Gras parade held along Oxford Street. It was a very good experience and very impressive. There were a few surprise entries from corporations including ANZ Bank, IKEA and IBM. No doubt, the Mardi Gras parade is a must-see event for everyone.

I need to get a digital SLR camera. My conventional digital camera is not good for night shots.

You can read more about the event from the Sydney Morning Herald article “Out on the town – 300,000 revellers“.

  2. most of the point and shoot cameras have a limited distance to get bright pictures at night (at most 3 meters). you can also try the slow synchro setting (i’m not sure if there’s one in your current camera) wherein it takes 2 flashes to “ensure” the brightness of the picture.

    should you get a dslr, i highly recommend canon. 😀
