Good series Dyane, How to get to 60 second exposure...

When in manual you see the f number and exposure time
Push (click) the thumbwheel, first push selects f stop, turning dial alters the f stop, second push selects exposure time, you found 30 seconds keep turning and you will see 40 seconds, 50 seconds, and then 60 seconds.

@ ujef thanks for showing the extra detail to be found.

Dyane,

f/8 is too small an aperture - f/4 would still give you a decent depth of field and would let in more light (I think Jeff got his f-stops mixed up, a bigger number is a small aperture). I believe SP mode is limited to 30 seconds but M mode allows 60 seconds. Anyway, 30 seconds at f/4 should be fine in this situation.

Hi Mick & Diane,

Yes, I was mixed up. The f-stop went the opposite way. My mistake, Diane. Thanks for the correction, Mick. Thanks & Appreciate it Y'all.

Jeff
