How can I do slow(at least 1"6) shutter speeds on my A640 in the daytime/late evening without the image being almost completely white? I want to take some sundown pictures at the beach and massive waves hitting rocks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Suprised no one replied to this. You will need to attach a filter to your camera. A nuetral density one can be attached with a tube adapter, this reduces the light coming into the camera so you can use longer shutter speeds without overexposing.

Wow! Thanks for that. I forgot about this topic and gave up hope.
