hand held night shot

Took this last night with my T4i. it has this setting on the mode dial. It takes several shots in a row, then puts them together for the best exposure. Pretty cool. But, evidently it needs something fairly close, and some light to focus on. I tried taking a picture of the purple night sky and the lights of the city, but it wouldn't take it.

Nice shot. Can you adjust the exposure time in that mode?


RE: hand held night shot

good question...I'll try it tonight

RE: hand held night shot combines 4 shots to create a stable image. You can change the ambiance settings, couldn't find anywhere to change the exposure.

RE: hand held night shot

Can you set the camera to choose an area to focus on and do light settings, such as the center of the frame?

RE: hand held night shot

I CAN choose an area to focus on. I'm not sure what you mean by "light settings"...I'm fairly new to camera lingo.
