If you look at the camera's specifications in it's review here, it shows that the longest shutter speed is 16 seconds (shutter priority or manual exposure modes).

You'll see it's performance discussed init's review conclusion section:

I'll move this thread down to the Kodakforum, where you may get some opinions on thequality ofit's long exposure night photos.

Guess that`s more than a few,,,lol,,the 7590 will do the same in low light night shots,,,,,



The 7590 is faster shot to shot than the 6490,,,best to look at Steves review though,,he does a good job at telling the pros and cons of the cameras he tests...all in all i`m very pleased with the 6490,,,and the 7590 has a lot of improvements over the 6490...

You didn't really.... We've got a number of forums here. So, selecting the best one can be difficult to decide. Since you haven't actually purchased the camera yet, we ask that What Camera Should IBuyquestions go in the first forum.

But, since you indicated that youplan onbuying the camera soon, and just wanted to know more about how it's long exposures and night shots worked, I figured that you would be more likely to get useful responses in the Kodak Forum. So, I moved it from the General Forum where you originally posted it (leaving a moved placeholder so you could find it).

I only moved it because I thought it would help you getbetter responses. ;-)
