Default Long Shutter Speeds in Daylight with S230?

Hey I just bought the S230, and man is it nice.. I saw a picture in a magazine that showed a waterfall very misty and dreamy, and it said the user used a long shutter speed to make the water look so magical.

so, I tried it out, drove frigin 15km to a waterfall, and started taking pics, setting the Shutter speed to 15sec.. problem is that the image stored was all white, completly white like overexposed.

I went home and turned on the bathtub in the dark, and did the same settings and the effect worked, bot only in the dark.

Is there anyway to use the long shutter speed in the daytime? Its seems like I can either choose shutter speed or underexpose settings, not both at the same time....

Thanks!

Default Long Shutter Speeds in Daylight with S230?

Hi Zoomforce,

I'm also trying to work out how to best use the slow shutter speeds on my A40 (there are a lot of them). I took some pictures of car lights at 1 Sec and 2 Sec and they got the streaking effect alright but the entire picture came out blurry. These pictures were taken at night time. I was wondering if there is anyway to get say the background sharp like you see in magazine advertising? In your case, the iris must be open really wide to let in so much light and burn out your picutures. Maybe you need to change a few other settings, like the exposure, ISO speed etc.

To get the background sharp, you hafta use a tripod.
