Night Time Photography And Some Questions on Specific Cameras
I'm getting ready to experiment with some night photography of some local architecture. I've got a tripod and a remote for my current camera, The Rebel Ti film camera. I read somewhere that I might only be able to get a couple of shots out of the camera because the longer exposers chew up the standard batteries. I've purchased a battery pack for the camera that allows you to use four AA alkaloid batteries like Duracells or something of that nature.
I'm thinking of purchasing the Nikon D40 as my digital SLR workhorse. I don't think anyone offers a battery pack that allows you to use alkaloid batteries for this camera, I'd also be interested in any experience you could pass along regarding using the Nikon D40 for night photography.
In fact if you want to also include any specific settings that I might want to try in the experiment, I'll take those too since these will be my first night shots.
