Seems people mostly shoot videos, including at night.

Has anyone shot a lot of long exposures using base (lowest) ISO, resulting in shutter speeds of 15-30 seconds or longer?

Can it hover without moving in order to attempt such long exposures?


Has anyone also tried long exposure panos, either using any automated capture modes or manually capturing (manually moving/turning/pivoting and shooting) and stitching for post-processing?

Here is my take on long exposure.

How long was the shutter speed and the what was the ISO Lucas?


Hmm, found a lot of night shots but most of them are with ISO 100 or 200 and shutter times under a second.

Some go up to 2-3 seconds but it seems longer exposures aren't needed?  Though these are mostly of skylines so I guess there was enough light from the buildings:

Last one is really nice, a 9-shot pano at dusk, 1-second exposure.

If I'm not mistaken, the max exposure time is 8 seconds. You could use a ND filter to achieve this.

Ah, I didn't realize 8 seconds was the max shutter time.

Is there a bulb mode?

I wonder if anyone has tried to capture the Milky Way or just stars in a very dark area.

Take your 8 second image and stack the photos to get a deeper exposure. I think 2 seconds max is a more reliable guide, then stack as many as you need then adjust you contrast lightness etc to suit

Yes 8 seconds max, it may come in handy on very bright day for Sea scapes water falls etc, although this was on 2 second with a ND 1000 filter.
