    Okay, can someone "explain like I'm five" a step-by-step procedue on how to set up the long exposure night shots with the IOS app? Are you setting your exposure time in manual mode, or using that timed shutter setting you get at the bottom of the "hold down the shutter button" menu?

    Thanks!

    yes, manual mode, use the wheel to select time of exposure, leave the iso down to 100. this was about 4 seconds I think.

    Hmm.... That's what I =think= I was doing; set manual, ISO 100, and then used the wheel to select a 10 second exposure. Exif says what I got was ISO 100 and 1/30th of a second (and a totally black frame, of course). What are you setting your shutter to in the manual exposure dialog -- is there a bulb setting or something to enable the wheel duration that I'm missing here?

    Thanks!

    push down/click the wheel to change from iso to ss,? if you use the menu on the left, slide it closed, or it will revert back to auto.

    Settings: ISO 100 and shutter set to 2 seconds.

    If it's not a really calm night than anything longer than 2.5 seconds will create blurred images.
