I have ben playing with this new to me camera for nights now. It does quite an amazing job on auto setting for everything.

Hi caryl

Your new camera certainly has potential. Night scenes can be so much fun and present interesting lighting. I like the 'almost eerie' feel to #1.

Both photos are a bit soft however. Not sure if this is because of subject movement (eg tree leaves / branches) or focus (slightly oof or a shallow dof) or if you didn't have your camera on a sturdy tripod.

I use a sturdy tripod but all auto focus. It does not seem to get really sharp in the dark but i will keep trying.

Do you use a shutter release cable or a timer, Caryl? If not, it could be you pushing the shutter button that is causing the softness. If you don't have a cable release, I would suggest trying it again with the timer.

I do use a timer. I have a cable release on order and it should be here soon. On long exposures, it is hard to keep trees from moving. I kind of like the soft effect because it is like a painting.

I love my cable release! Put your camera on continuous shooting mode and lock the cable release and you have time-lapse images!

What do you do with the time-lapse images?
