    Hello! Does anyone know why in the time-lapse mode of the photo, ignored the exposure settings, ISO, light? That is, I want to shoot a photo in the dark.

    You tried photo (not video) time lapse and changing ISO, EV, etc. didn't change anything? My guess is it simply can't be done. I'll try it and I'll report back on that.

    My results were mixed. I tried to force badly over-exposed photos (EV +2, ISO 1600) and didn't really get any extremely poorly exposed pictures. A series of photo-lapse pictures of the underside of my desk (dark!) were auto-exposed and came out as acceptably well exposed. I may very well be missing some settings, but I think I had the settings right. Bottom line:Trying to force over-exposure didn't work well. Photographs of the dark corner of my desk were reasonably well exposed.

    What were you trying to photograph?

    Thanks for answers. I photograph at night from a window, for example. The main thing - long exposure. Maybe ISO, EV affect the photo, but too little. Why is it not "screwed" to the regime? (long exposure)

    I see that this topic has already surfaced on the forum. I sent the application to the Wishlist.

    I'll try shooting something tonight.

    I'll give things a try to see what happens. But without, the two main controls, real shutter or aperture (exposure) control, the results probably won't be very encouraging.
