    Testing Hand Held Night Shot Mode

    I haven't had anything to test this on yet so I shot the blue moon. This is another feature of the A580. This is a heavy crop. I am not sure but I think the camera takes over and sets all the settings. It only works in Jpeg mode which the camera will change if you are in RAW.

    Frank, I have a mate just down the road with an A580 and he loves it. I've played around with it for a short while.
    I think this is what Sony call "Hand Held Twilight Mode" and you're right that the camera decides everything for you and it will select a wide aperture (probably wide open) which is not necessarily ideal.
    The camera rattles off 6 images and then "micro aligns" them before merging them.
    Of course, it's important to remain as still as possible to help with the aligning of the 6 frames.

    I think you have more control with Multi-Frame Noise Reduction which does a similar thing.
