So my question is how to I shoot at low shutter speeds in bright sun light without the cammera over exposure ?

You'll be limited with your options because the longer the shutter is open, the more light comes in through the lens.

  • You can use a hand-held Neutral Density Filter (best idea)
  • If you don't have an ND filter, hold your sunglasses in front of the lens.
  • You can lower your ISO to reduce the sensitivity of the image sensor.
  • You can reduce the aperture size by increasing the f-stop number (cutting down on light entering the lens)

Those will probably be your main options because the longer your shutter is open, the brighter your scene will be. The same applies to all cameras.

Hope this helps a little.
