You have a C-700, right ? Well, to get the full 16 seconds that camera is capable of, you have to go to A/S/M mode, and go to your setting menu and set it up to function in "M" mode. Then just press the down arrow untill you get to 16 second exposure time.

John,
I use the C-700 as well. I have done some night work with the camera and have had mixed results. I keep in on iso 100, m mode, tripod, and use the auto shutter so I don't move the camera while depressing the shutter button. 16 seconds is a long time, and as you can imagine a certain amount of noise will present itself. I have found it to be almost negligible at exposures of around 5-7 seconds or less as long as there is some ambient light available. I have tried other iso settings but was less then satisfied with the results. Use a mid range f-stop, and bracket, bracket, bracket!

Keep us informed with your progress. And good luck.

v/r
Jeff
