Help! Night Shots

Sat Nov 16, 2002 7:14 am

I'm planning to go to the Airport for night shots today, but I don't know how to take night shots with the Sony F707.

I like Europix shots.. how he does to take those shots??

Please give some tips about the settings in the camera.

Regards,

Set a - (Negative) shutter speed. Depending on how dark it is. I use "8 sec for gate shots and "30 (bulp) for "aircraft_trough_the_picture".

Also, the aparture setting is rather important.. f4.5/5.0 should be a OK start.

you dont need a tripod.

I have done shots as long as 8 seconds by holding the camera against a window. All my YVR night shots are hand held.

Hi,

Thanks a lot, well the result was not very good. I will try again.

Royal, do you got the new Copa 737-700 with the 100th Panama Aniversary sticker yesterday?

Thanks again for your help.
