Daytime exposures On Canon SX 1
 
Hi guys/girls, I'm new to photography and new to this site so hi!...:D

A month ago I got myself a Canon SX1 is, I do like it and it was a huge improvement on my Fuji S5500 which I used for holidays etc,If I knew I was going to get interested as much as I have then I'd have gone for a real DSLR

I've started to take things a little more seriously with this one anyhow, but I'm having trouble achieving long daytime exposures, IE: tidal movement etc.... Just can't do it?, anything above 1 second needs to be set on the Scene setting which then gives me no control over aperture whatsoever..... and comes out over exposed

Anyone had any joy creating those lovely white frothy waterfall/or Tide movement shots with the SX1.?...:), if so how?

I've bought a filter adapter for it with ND4 ND8 filters, and nothing stops the overexposure.

Cheers

James

PS

here what I've done in the past month

Look forward to spending some time here..:D

Hi, well I couldn't get them on the SX1 for some reason, I could only set the Aperture to F/8 with a shutter speed of 1 second, so I went out and bought a Canon 50D, which allowed me to set the aperture to f/15-20 + and set the Shutter speed to between 2 - 4 seconds, thats the effect I was looking for when I started this thread.
