Sorry to post a basic question, but I have just got my Fuji s9500 and have been attempting to take some night pictures of the city and buildings. Being a complete novices if anyone can give me some ideas of settings I should use, up till now my pictures have been fit for the delete button.

Cheers Ray

I have done a little night photography, nothing great, but I have been sort of happy with some of the photos. I had my best success with aperture preferred mode, f/4, ISO 200 or 400. You will probably want to use a tripod or have a bean bag to set the camera on for stability. It would also be a good idea to either use a cable release or else use the two second timer to help minimize camera movement because your shutter speeds will be quite slow.

Thank you all very much for your tip's and advise. I have posted 1 of a number of pictures I took of a bridge over the marina we have here in Swansea, using a number of settings this seemed to be one of the best.



The settings were, Fuji S9500, Manual, Shutter speed 2.5 & F8. ISO 200

Any comments more than welcome, Regards Ray
