I would like to take some night time photos where you see the lights of the car streaking by. I am very new to all this, so if someone could explain how to do this. I realize you need a tripod, but how do I keep the shutter open. Is this possible with a digital camera.
I have the Oly 3000z.
Any help would be appreciated. Just trying to experiment and learn.

Re: Time Lapse with Oly 3000z
I believe the 300 is the same as the 3030 in flash mode you can choose one of the slow sink modes to accomplish this, I am sure there are other ways to do this as well. You will probrably get some better answers from Barry or the other pros.

Tim lapse video does not make any sense to me. In general time lapse is a way to take photos at a specific interval. You can actually make a movie showing fast action in post process on your computer (using 3rd party software)
Hi David if it's a dslr camera the photos can be found by firstly pressing the button with a triangle inside a square box then the left button inside the wheel dial.if you photograph astro shots like myself this wheel is great fun as it can be used as a time lapse function as star pictures have little movement so turning the dial left or right this gives you a terrific effect.it will give you a good idea of how time lapse photography looks too.Great on the screen!Let me know how you get on David please .thanks.maxine
Not sure you can fix this, but most of the time the stripes are produced in a dark environment with one or a few bright lights. The streaks start on the bright light. Most of the time if you shoot the picture the streaks are not on the picture.
You could try to switch the camera to the automatic, or perhaps night scene.
If the streaks are there in normal light, I think your camera is defect.
There are ways to deal with this problem. As others have said,
your camera appears to be normal.
Consider using "dark frame subtraction" to successfully employ
long shutter speeds. The technique involves capturing two images
using the same exposure time and the same camera temperature.
One of the images is your picture. The other (the "dark image") is
captured with the lens cap on, or other suitable way to block all light.
Then using one of the more sophisticated photo editing applications,
"subtract" the "dark image" from your picture. This technique will
dramatically reduce the noise, because moist of the noise is deterministic,
but is highly dependent on shutter speed and on CCD temperature.
Of course you can use flash at night, but only for subjects
that are close enough to the camera - not for a subject such
as your stjernehimmel 2 photo
