How to shoot night scene
Dear all senior & experienced photographer,
Hi I am a newbie in digital photography,just bought a canon ixus v2,a 2 mega pixel camera which is handy enough for me to carry around. I would like to ask can anyone out there teach me how to shoot night scene (especially those with
neon lights & lot of lightings) using my camera manual setting such as aperture,ISO,shutter speed,etc??? Because i see a lot of nice night photo around in this site and i am really impressed and inspired to learn and shoot the same way as you guys out there,please enlighten. Otherwise is maybe someone can recommend me some books or website to refer to so I can read up more on the basics of digital photography Thank you very much n hope to joiin u all for some photo taking outing soon

There's a night mode somewhere in Canon V2.
Read the manual and you should know.
You can't change the aperature or shutter speed for V2 so setting the camera to night mode is the best you can do. the camera will decide the setting for you. however, u need a tripod or a super steady hand cos the shutter speed is going to be slow.

Why don't you just do a search on the forum. It has been discussed before..

Thanks a lot for all your help and guiding. I will go test my camera out.

keep your shutter speed as low as possible. Above 2-3 seconds noise increases dramatically, to a point where they actually form hotspots on your image that even neatimage can't defeat. Yucks.
