    Default star effect in night shoot

    anyone can tell me how to get the star effect with my A40? I read that some correct settings will give tht effect, right?

    also there is something called star filter? how much?

    thank you. still very new in photography.

    some cameras can give star effect at small aperture settings.

    mine can't, so I have to use a star filter/cross screen star filter. here's one that perhaps is overdone

    You will be ale to get a bit of the starry effect if ur aperture is at F7.0

    I believe anything smaller than that (F8, F9) will be better but due to the noises I have for my cam, my limit is only at about F7

    Oly C-2100uz can produce pretty good starlight effect using a small aperture.......w/o additional filters.
