HuHu Lin December 31, 2006

Can I ask you a question that the minimal shutter speed of my camera is 15 sec if I could get such effect like this one?
BTW,Congrats to this winner of October! #3762485

William88 January 22, 2007

Hi HuHu, sorry I missed this message.
Usually the you will see the difference between 15s and 60s but not so obvious. For a tele ocean view of a full range of waves like this one, you will need 60s because the motion takes time.

Thank you for the greeting. #3850542
