Long Exposure XZ-1 Questions
Mar 31, 2012

Hi all!

Has anyone here played around with long exposures on their xz-1? The longer the better. What is your opinion of these shots? Would you consider the image at noisy (and I know noisy is subjective) at 10 minutes?

But you need a remote launcher for 10min exposure or patience to keep finger on the shutter button

Longest I have used are these photos.

I think you will see some noise in brighter area (i.e. sky) but they are treatable in post processing. Here are two shots I took yesterday, first one is 10-sec, second one is 40-sec shot:
