    i was at the esplande couple of weeks back and saw this C or N setup .... think he was doing time lapse. couldn't be longer exp cause it was around 7pm and the place was still quite bright with the sun setting .... he setup his tripod and the camera would take a pic like every xx seconds ...

    i'm sure it wasn't remotely trigger (wire or not) cos the guy was standing way behind the camera .... are we able to do it on k-x? i can seem to work around the settings after going thru the menu .... or am i missing something ?

    I think if using Bulb shutter with very low ISO(like 100) can achived that. I did that during an outing in the past. But dunno la. Forget all the steps liao.

    Maybe he using IR shutter. Like K-x uses thats why he stand a little far away.

    Or maybe, there is this technique using photoshop. Which u took same area with different time. Like afternoon, evening & night. Then u stitched all together into 1. Looks quite cool to see from left afternoon then middle evening then the right is night. I read this in Digital camera magazine.

    he was standing behind the camera at quite a distance ... and unless dslr nowadays comes with blue tooth remotes ... it's not possible to be IR as u would have to be within the line of sight of the receiver.

    even with bulb at 100 iso , with that amount of light all he will get is white screen. the cam was at least taking 3 shots by itself with a very obvious time gap in between ... must be something to do with the timer and continous shot.

    pg 136 to 139 on the manuel doesn't seem to explain much ...

    Guys need some help here, anyone experience not being able to take photo. The shutter speed and metering all blank off when this happen. When i switch to
    live view, it just shows a black screen. I was using the DAL 18-55 lens. I was sure that the lens is secured and not loose.

    LV suppose to compose using the LCD and take photo...

    ur blank off is referring to the VF ? if it doesn't then its a miracle...

    sorry joke aside... if ur blank off is on the LCD screen, then can i ask did u remove the lens cap... ? if LCD blank off... lens cap off, then camera spoilt liao...

    Just a warning that you'll get clipped highlights on the blinking red dot areas.
    Won't turn up as red dots in the actual image, but will be pure bright white.
