    Any tips for night shots? settings? I plan to use a tripod....also, how about hand held twilight tips? Thanks.

    I took this one last summer in Budapest

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/christianhass/9667919884/" title="DSC05347_stitch_small by ChristianHass, on Flickr"> 9667919884_d934873133_z. "640" height="159" alt="DSC05347_stitch_small"></a>

    3 shot (camera JPEGs) stitched with Microsoft ICE. I used a tiny tripod like this
    344-416-large.

    For hand held shots I'd use multiple shots, 10-12 shots at the slowest speed you can held hold without blur will clean up the noise rather well. It works best with shooting RAW and converting the images without luminance NR to preserve sharpness.
    You can use the cameras multi-shot noise reduction, but I'm not very happy with it. I use a piece of software called Photo Acute 3 which can align and combine the shots automatically.

    No, I pick my focus area. Either with the movable focus box, or with manual focusing and peaking. When I do several shots for stitching I focus on the main target, then switch to manual focus (and lock exposure), so all the shots have the same focus distance.
