ZS20 / TZ30 - Low Light and getting round the loss of 'Starry Sky'?
May 27, 2012

I'm interested in getting hold of the ZS20 / TZ30 as I have some vouchers that will knock a bit off the price. It's a fast camera (burst mode, etc.) hence my interest and is an imporvement on the TZ20.

I note Starry Sky has been removed and the slowest shutter speed is now 15 seconds. I found this mode useful for very low light and gaining a good quality picture.

How do I get round this? Can I set the camera for 15 seconds shutter, maximum aperture and by nudging the ISO up to 200, get an acceptable picture say of the night sky? Or will 15 seconds at 100 ISO be okay?
