03 Fish Eye long exposure?

Hi,

I just received my fisheye from pentax in the mail and was wondering why the shutter speed only stays open for as long as 2 seconds? The prime goes all the way to 30 + Bulb! Is there any way around this limitation? I was hoping to do longer exposures for night photography.

Fish eye does not have a iris shutter like the prime lens so there are limitation to the shutter speed i believe.

Quij, the electronic shutter is limited to 2 seconds. There is a work around. Set mode to manual exposure and shoot 9 multiple exposures at 2 seconds each. This will also reduce noise by a huge amount.
thanks

That is exactly what I was looking for. I will test it tonight and see what I can get with it!

I have to say...this fisheye lens make this Q perhaps the coolest camera ever. It is so small and with a monopod and remote...you can get some pretty amazing shots! Great price too...

I also have to recommend getting better body caps. I bought 2 very cheaply that connect rather than sliding in.
