How to take long exposure (shutter speed) in compact cameras ?
Jul 24, 2012

Hey,

I am talking about cameras with no manual control.
Specifically the DMC-SZ1.

The max shutter speed is 8 seconds according the specifications of the camera.

But when I am trying different camera modes / scenes with no flash - the longest I get, for very dark places is 1/4 second.

How can I shoot with 1 to 8 seconds shutter speed ? What should be defined ?

Thanks
