The manual exposure display includes an exposure indicator that shows the amount the picture would be under- or over-exposed at current settings.
To preview exposure in the LCD monitor, select [ON] for [SCREEN SET-UP] > [PREVIEW EXP. IN MANUAL MODE].

Use of a tripod is recommended to prevent the camera from moving during the exposure.
A count-down timer will be displayed while the exposure is in progress.
To reduce "noise" (mottling) in long time-exposures, select [ON] for [LONG EXPOSURE NR] in the shooting menu. Note that this may increase the time needed to record images after shooting.
An optional RR-90 remote release can be used for long time-exposures.
