    was getting photos of nighttime christmas lights but could not get anything good. this picture was screen shorted off Facebook so it's even worse. but I couldn't get the lights to not be blurry and I'd like some advice. I also did a 5 bracketed shot, maybe I should just do a single shot idk.

    I was just about to ask this. I've taken some night shots of some lights on buildings and got the best results using 2-3 second exposures. I think that how much surrounding light will also make a difference. It's gonna be new to everyone this year since it came out after Christmas last year. I can't wait to start!

    In order to avoid blurriness the craft unfortunately has to be very still, so the only way to really counteract this is by positioning it much further away so that those tiny movements aren't shown through with the slow shutter speed.
