Yeah, I've seen them, they are very nice. I haven't taken many long exposure shots myself. I think I'll try some out now lol. Also, how do you take the photos of the stars like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/scottat...in/photostream

I've tried before but it was crap. It there a process like stacking images?
post #15975 of 29539
alot of people like that image.....
exif should be intact though. Thats actually a single image
ISO1600, f4.5, 30 sec, 11mm, 550D

That was just a special night - with the fog etc and its a good 20km from the nearest major town.....

I love my long exposure night shots and my 3:1s (as you probably noticed on my flickr) - and its what im best at doing....doing a wedding in December though so that will be interesting :/

easiest method for long exposure:

use as high and iso as possible to compose.
set iso to <400 (on my 550d at least, your 60 has the same sensor so the same applies)
sit and wait

as a general idea
iso 400 for no moon
iso 100 if possible (full moon etc)
If you want stars like in my image you linked - you need a high iso to get points of light.
Due to the rotation of the earth you will get the star trails.
For my Tamron 11-18 @ 11mm ill get trails after about 33 seconds.
Greater the focal length, the shorter that time.

Thanks, this helps a lot! I got 15mm on the wide end so I'll try some when it isn't cloudy. I'll post them up when done.

also great for fast lenses during daytime to get more dof and you don't have a camera with a 1/8000 shutter or want to have a moving taxi in the background.

Probably buy it early next week

The other consideration - looking at long exposure daytime photography - so im looking at a B+W 110 or a Hoya ND400 - opinions on either of them would be appreciated as well.

Thanks
I would get at least a 6-stop ND. I have a B+W F-Pro 1.8 and it's sometimes isn't dark enough. I'm looking into a 10 stop or higher currently. If only Sing-Ray wasn't so damned expensive.

I think they're more prevalent than you think. I see lots of people with them who cleary don't know what they're for, thinking that they're UV filters.

I have a 16. It's dark enough to blur motion at moderate apertures (f/8 ish) in bright daylight at iso 100.
