Ok, this weekend I purchased the wide conversion lens and polarized lens filter for my H-50. I am still trying to get used to this camera and ever since introducing myself on the forum I have had great advice on how to work the ISO, f/stop, shutter speed, etc.

I am leaving for vacation to my wife's favorite destination, Walt Disney World. I have never been myself but I heard there is tons to do and tons to photograph. I want to be able to capture some great shots of the firework shows that go on at night and some of the night parades.

I know with the wide angle lens you have to set it up in the settings option to let the camera know you have the lens on. I also figured out that the zoom capability goes right out the window when it's on. So if I am able to get some good spots where high zoom may not be an issue, what would be the best settings (ISO, f/stop, shutter speed) to catch the show? Would I have to adjust differently without the lens on as far as the settings go?

Thanks for all the help!
