Re: WG-70 Star Settings?

I don't have the wg-70, but have used an older "rugged" Ricoh model. You'll have to read the manual carefully, I'm not sure you can capture star trails with the wg-70. For that you need either a long exposure (of a few minutes at least), or else an "interval composite" mode, which means that the pics taken in interval mode are merged together. The "interval mode" you have on the wg-70 might just take pics at set intervals, but not combine them. Which means that you'll just get a lot of stills, without the trails.

I am supposing that the camera will auto-focus in this mode - and it might struggle to do so at night.

Hope that someone who has this camera will help better.
