    Sorry gang. ; Have not been around for a while. ; Too much overseas travel.

    Just got back from a quick trip with my wife's friends to WDW. ; Decided to take my camera on Everest and attempt to capture the Yeti. ; What do you think?

    I never had the guts to have my camera in hand while on the ride, well done!

    I set the ISO to 6400 and manual mode. ; Shutter at 1/3 sec and f 3.5. ; When I got to that last drop in the Yeti room I aimed the camera up and hit rapid fire. ; I took about 5 frames. ; This was the best. ; The key was capturing the image during the strobe flash.

    The best part was looking down at the images after the ride to see that I got the shot. ;

    I let the lens autofocus. ; Nothing magic on my end. ; Just lucky I guess.

    Fantastic captures! You definitely had a bit of luck with the second lining everything up. :)

    Nice work Chris! ; I've tried twice to get that second shot and failed miserably both times.

    John Frost mentioned that they are working on creating marionette Yeti right now. ; Trying to figure out which was the worst flop: ; the Yeti or Murphy, the new dragon for Disneyland Fantasmic!

    Did they ever fix that Dragon?

    You know, I don't know. ; Like the Yeti, there were some engineering shortcomings so it couldn't handle the stresses of actually, you know, moving during a show.

    I think WDI needs to hire a few engineers rather than outsourcing it. ; With the new Monorails at DL (didn't measure things right, no AC), Murphy and the Yeti, well...the track record of late isn't that spectacular.
