    We don't seem to get many motion shots so I thought I would try one (still playing with this new camera instead of working on the layout like I oughta). :p

    Cool, Tyson!

    So...enlighten me here a little bit. You can adjust the exposure rate on that camera?

    No Rory, but the way I understand it most of the digital cameras (except maybe the real high $$$$ ones) have a slower shutter speed then the normal camera all things else being equal. While the train in that shot looks like its flying it was probably doing about a scale 30 mph. May try the shot again with the train creeping to see what I get.

    Hi Tyson,
    Thats a nice idea getting photo's of things on the move. With the old 35mm it was easy to do that just by having the shutter open for 2 seconds and moving the camera on a tripod. With digital, in my case anyway, the camera looks at the subject when the button is pressed and remembers what it saw, then takes the picture. This is why I have to fool the damn thing now and again if I want a special photo.

    That's really cool, Tyson!
    I don't think my camera will do any kind of slow exposure...I haven't reall tried it out, though.

    That's a neat idea, Tyson. I may have to do some experimenting with movement also.

    My digital has a full range of shutter speeds as well as aperture settings, but most of my layout photos are in the 1/2 - 2 seconds exposure range. So I'm thinking I wouldn't need much movement at all to show motion.

    Let us know how your experiments with the "creeping train" go.
