Default 16 sec exposure on toshiba pdr m500/m700

hi, i just bought a pdrm500, and i dont know to set the shutter speed to as long as 16 seconds... the longest shutter speeds ive gotten was 1/2 seconds... how do i set the camera to take pics with a 16 second shutter speed?

is it as simple as just setting it to ISO 70?

Redman, you must first set the mode dial to manual capture. Then press "OK" twice to bring up the menu buttons and use the directional buttons to highlight the first one (exposure). Press the up arrow, then the right arrow to select "M". Press OK twice, and you can now set the lens speed and shutter speed using the arrow buttons. The slowest speed that you can get in any type of auto mode - P, Av, or Tv is 1/2 sec. I have the M700, and believe that the controls are the same as the M500.

Hope this helps.

But,,, one thing to note.!!!


if it is a night shot,,,and you set it to 16s,,,, you will discover a purple color/noise in the upper corners.

This an on going porblem.

Dont think there is a remedy.
