No, it is not normal. One thing that Manual mode is used for is to take multiple photographs with the same exposure parameters which is very useful in many situations. There are a few cases where it may happen though. If you are bracketing for exposure, then one of the exposure-parameters, usually shutter-speed, is changed between frames until the bracket is ...


If you think of a camera as simply a light collector or photon counter and ignore actually taking a picture of a scene, there is a very simple relationship between ISO, aperture, and shutter speed: Total light collected is proportional to ISO × aperture × shutter speed × available light in the scene For the remainder of this ...


Scott's answer is not strictly correct, depending on your quality expectations. First of all, yes, eventually the sensor would overheat and fail, in theory. But that would presumably take a much longer exposure than anyone is going to be making with a smartphone. The more immediate problem is thermal noise. Every sensor, particularly those with smaller ...


It's just a limitation of the built-in camera software. There are several apps available to take long exposure photos with smartphones. Some articles on gear, apps, and techniques: How To Take Stunning Long Exposure Photos With iPhone Taking Long Exposures with an iPhone How To Take Long Exposure Shots With Your Phone How to Do Long Exposure Photography w/ ...


Most cameras are set up by default in one mode or another to assume that you wish to use the flash as fill or to illuminate your subject only while the rest of the scene is properly exposed by the available ambient light. Your Panasonic GH4 behaves this way in iA mode. Most other cameras do this when set to Av/A mode. Many cameras have menu options that ...


This is working by design. In iA ("intelligent automatic") mode with flash enabled, Panasonic cameras attempt to balance ambient light with flash — dragging the shutter. And from what I've seen elsewhere, it tends to be pretty aggressive with this, resulting in shutter speeds like what you're seeing. So, unless your subject is static or there is a lot of ...


I have a D7000 and it does it when the bracketing is on. Check this setting I think it will be the same on the D7100 too .


If a manual shutter speed is changing, then you have Bracketing turned on. Turn bracketing off. Change number of bracketed shots to be zero.
