    Exclamation Slow Shutter on Lumix DMC-TZ5?

    Hi,

    I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ5. How do I force the 2-3 second "slow shutter" speed mode?
    Thanks

    Not sure you can be that specific if it doesn't have a manual mode.

    I have the TZ7 and the best you can do is "force" a longer shutter speed by making sure you :
    • Set "No Flash"
    • Set Low ISO (eg 100)


    This will "force" a slow shutter speed.....but you will need a tripod (and a stationary subject)

    If it has it, select i-Night Scenery which should also force a slow shutter speed.

    Many thanks for your reply. Those are some great tips and I will definitely try those. I hope it works, as slow shutter gives some very cool results.

    No problems...just remember, if there is enough available light, then the camera is still going to select a fast shutter speed.

    With SLR cameras, we put filters on the lenses to reduce the amount of available light so the shutter speed can be slowed down (for waterfalls etc).
