In order to set up your camera for a night landscape it’s pretty simple there’s really just a couple of things you need to keep track of.
One thing is turn the flash off you’re not going to use the flash because in a night landscape it wont help any, so you don’t have that on auto because in auto we’ll use the flash, so press the flash button here on the right to get to the flash. When you scroll through the different options until you get to your flash off, so that’s what you want.
Your ISO should be set to 80 this will help produce the best cleanest image. If yours is not set to 80 go ahead and hit the up navigation button or ISO to access move that around by pressing up or down until you get to ISO 80 again, this will help produce very clean images. You don’t want that set auto. And in the function menu, go ahead and press the function button here in the center.
As with most pictures the mode should be set to manual and this will allows access to things like wide balance and the ISO that we need, and in case long shutter. Go ahead and press down to get to your exposure compensation setting and hit display you can see down here at the button and says display for night scenes go ahead and hit display and this will access the long shutter option.
Now mine is set to ten seconds you can change yours up to even 15 seconds, and this really depends on how much light is in your scene, so use the left and right navigation buttons to either move that number up to 15 or down again. This really depends on your scenario. Go ahead and go down to wide balance, and in case mine is set to daylight, but usually at least with a CD escape the streetlights are very yellowish. So I don’t want that because maybe a little too yellow, so I want to move that over to tungsten, and this is going to compensate for that yellowness in the light and give me a much more natural tone.
Go ahead and press function to escape the function menu, and now you can see that my long shutter is set to six seconds. My wide balance is set to tungsten. My ISO is set to 80, and my flash is turned off and we should be set to take the picture.
Now remember, with a long shutter speed such as this you need to use a tripod and this is very, very important. You can’t hand hold the six second picture or even a two second picture, so use a tripod put your tripod and the tripod mount set the camera and when you’re using a tripod I highly recommend using the timer mode.
So lastly, what you want to do is press the down navigation button here to access the drive mode and set this to a two second timer. If you have a food tripod two seconds should be just fine. Press the button halfway, focus press the button the rest of the way to activate the timer. Let go of the camera completely so it has time to stop shaking and then I’ll take the picture. If you have a tripod I have a tripod for example it’s very, very small and the head on the tripod is a little wobbly, so it doesn’t hold the camera very steady, so what I need is the ten second timer to give it a lot more time in order to stop shaking once I’ve release the camera. That’s what you want to do, set the timer when you’re using long exposure such as this.
