Thanks for commenting Red Royalty:cool:

To set the long exposures, you have to go in the Manual mode (M)in the P.A.S.M settings and move the shutter speed under 1 second...

For these pictures, I used some exposure times between 3 and 16 seconds!!

I used a flash light and moved it in a dark room while the camera was taking the picture;)

Playing with light seems to be fun. Look like you had a good time and did a fine job.

[align=left]I'm just wondering... Could you just go into shutter priority mode and set the shutter speed, then it would set the Aperture accordingly? And get the same result? :)

I love long exposure shots :-)

Was that an LED flashlight?

And don't you mean exposures OVER 1 second ;)

Boily Aug 4, 2006 9:24 AM



Yes it was a led flash light and exposures were between 3 and 16 seconds!!

I see that you did yours withsom cake sparkles;)
Great picture:cool:

Yes it would work but here is a little tip!!

Do you know that F2.8 is sharper than F8.0?

Now that you know it, you should always use F2.8, I personally think that the results are superior:-)

So in the Manual mode you just have to set the aperture to F2.8 and put the good shutter speed!

Are you sure Boily? I could have sworn that the higher the f-stop the sharper your pictures would be... because I usually use low f-stops to get a blurred background and just one point in focus...

Boily Aug 4, 2006 9:57 AM

I am 100% sure!!

Because if you are looking at DSLR lenses, a 100-400mm F2.8 willbex4 more expansive compare to a100-400mm F4.5 !!

With F2.8 you get sharper images because it lower the time of the exposure, If you use aperture priority and you set the aperture to f2.8 than you move it to F8.0, you will see the difference of the shutter speeds:-)

Second childhood, Boily? :-)If so then go for it.

Great pics.



Boily Aug 4, 2006 10:00 AM

Thanks Domang:lol:

Morag2 Aug 4, 2006 10:23 AM

OOO!! I understand what you mean, it reduces image shake!

Was I right in saying that using a low f-stop does give you a blurry background when you are doing macro shots?

Boily Aug 4, 2006 10:24 AM

Yes, lower F stops increase the depth of filed ( Blurred backgrounds )

Morag2 Aug 4, 2006 10:26 AM

Awesome, many thanks Boily! (and apologies in advance for stealing your long exposure idea in my other topic);)

Boily Aug 4, 2006 10:29 AM

LOL no problem Morag, the point is to have fun:-)

En121 Aug 4, 2006 11:20 AM

I see... But, what if you need a faster shutter speed. Such as 1/500 or 1/1000? Wouldn't you have to higher the F-stop?

-En121

Boily Aug 4, 2006 11:25 AM

If you want a fast shutter speed like 1/500 or 1/1000 just use the shutter priority!!



En121 Aug 4, 2006 11:29 AM

Haha. Yeah. S mode is probally best for taking action shots eh?

Thanks.

-En121

Boily Aug 4, 2006 11:30 AM

Yes, or you can use the sport mode...It automaticaly ajust the camera for fast movements !!

En121 Aug 4, 2006 12:04 PM

Ah. Yes. Action mode... Someone told me I would probally be better off using S mode or something. Might have been Manual...

Thanks.
