It may or may not be possible. Without knowing the make and model of camera it's impossible to say.

Different cameras handle it different ways (including not at all.)

To quote Steve's review of the camera:
Shutter Speeds
15 1/2000 sec.
1.3 sec. or slower shutter speeds are available in Shutter-priority mode or Manual mode. Slow shutter speeds of 15 to 1.3 sec. or slower operate with noise reduction.

So it sounds like you can get up to a 15 second exposure. you'll obviously need to put it on a tripod or other very steady surface.
