View Full Version : 'Night snaphot' ?
14th of April 2007 (Sat), 16:55
I previously got powershots ( a60/a75) .
I got fantastic pictures in dark situations on a tripod, select with the ring the preset for long shuttertime.
Now I got the Ixus 65, I got 2 questions:
1. I noticed there is no shuttertime preset, but 'Night snaphot' , what is this preset in fact doing with settings? It seems to me only something with the ISO value, but no shuttertime, because I can't get that nice pictures anymore?
2. Is it right there is no long shuttertime preset of setting option for shuttertime?

I believe Night Snapshot wants to use the flash and high ISO to get a good exposure of the subject, never mind the background. If you want to use a longer exposure, go to High ISO and Camera Manual with flash turned off.

ok thanks, but this doesn;'t results in that sharp en clear pictures like long shuttertime.
But So: the Ixus don't have this option for the shuttertime, ?

It has practically no controls for the technically-minded photographer. I think the first camera that offers that would be the A560 or so; maybe the A710IS if you want IS as well. And even then, longest shutter speed will be about 15 sec.

My Ixy 1000 (Ixus 950 equiv I think) on has long shutter in manual mode. You have to enable it though. Coupled to a tripod, it take excellent night shots:
Hunt around in the setup menu. You enable it once it's switched on via the exposure compensation dialogue.

I juist now noticed the option
The problem is that the papered user guide isn't a total guide
And there is nothing about shuttertimes
On the CD there is the full uses Guide in PDF
Now I noticed indeed you first have to enable long shutter in 'menu' and then in 'function' you can use it...
Something you have to read in the user manual...
thanks for all
By the way> Katana: Beautiful picture!!
