You are too late. The Fiesta is this week. We just watched the Mass Ascension over the weekend.

That said, P mode has worked fine for me.

As for lenses, my 18-135 was great for general walking around, while the 70-300 is handy when you are shooting balloons kinda far away *outside* of the park.

What camera do you own please post the FULL model name.


-Demetrius

Current Gear: EOS 5D Mark IV, EF F/2.8 Trinity, EF 50mm F/1.8 STM, EF 85mm F/1.8 USM, 470EX-AI & 600EX II-RT

Retired Gear: EOS 40D

I just have the beginner lenses that come with the 

EOS Rebel T5i 18.0 MP CMOS Digital SLR with 18-55mm EF-S is STM Lens

These are the two I have...

-18-135mm lens

-70-300mm lens

Usually the EF 75-300mm or EF-S 55-250mm lenses comes in Rebel kits. Not the EF 70-300mm lens.

Thank you and I'll be there this weekend. 

your pictures turned out great!!!!

Thanks I have been to a lot of them. Too bad Canon and the Fiesta had a falling out, or you could have had a free cleaning.
