    wouldn't the impact of the "light trails" be diminished a lot in B n W?

    okie.... so you just want the head/tail light trail right??

    mount your camera on the tripod, compose the picture. use low/med ISO - 100 or 200
    you can set manual mode and the following for testers:

    f5.6, 0.3 secs (look for the camera metering to see whether it's over or under exposed)
    f8.0, 2 secs

    have fun experiementing!

    read his post carefully

    at f8, the shutter is 2sec
    at f5.6, the shutter is 0.3sec

    the difference is that at f9, you get longer car light trails as the film will be exposed for 2 seconds, allowing the cars to travel further and thus produce longer trails...

    nothing about sharpness here.
