Seeking settings recommendations for 5N hand held city night shots.
Jan 22, 2013

I'm going to be shooting a great deal in London from twilight into the night. In the old days I would bring a tripod and my film rig. I'm not bringing a tripod this time (although I could rent one at Calumet which is not cheap). I'm really not up for lugging a good tripod around London at night any longer.

If you look on Flickr under "London at Night" you would see a lot of the landmarks I will be shooting.

So for experienced NEX shooters what would you recommend for hand held settings, Modes etc. keeping in mind I don't see as well as I used to and really don't want to manually focus.

I'm not sure of the "Night scene" setting and or creative settings to get really good shots.

I really do want a deeper DoF as well.

and obviously worried about shutter speed hand held.

Any suggestions for this particular camera strengths and weaknesses, ratios/tradeoffs, as I'm thinking this through.
