What settings do all of you use for night/sunset shots? I took mine up last night for the first time, and it seems VERY blurry

Thanks

I left mine on auto, set the EV at +1.3 and they came out good! I had a few that were blurry, but I'm pretty sure I was moving when I took them.

CMH DJI nite street.jpg Keep in mind that night shots may not always be the best thing to do, as you lose a lot of details in the sky... This picture was taken 25 to 30 minutes after sunset, and still looks nice, and having a sky for the background to boot.

I usually set the lowest shutter speed that I dare, with no wind. (so far, anything under 1/5sec has been blurry)
I also use the compensation as needed until it looks decent on the screen.

ISO at 100, exposure at 2 seconds. Here's two different shots I took when testing this. First one has streaks across it because I was moving it before the 2 seconds had completed for the shot, which may explain your blurs. Second shot I took the night after. I left it for a few seconds to 'settle' in position, then took the picture and allowed the two second exposure to play out.

Very nice. I can't wait to try out long exposures. Did you use a filter at all?
