    Hi

    I would like to know if there was a way to go further than the 30 second limit reachable in the pro mode of the pre installed camera.
    if it is not possible, is there an app that would be able to go as far as 5 minutes ?
    I red some articles on the forum, that were speaking of FV-5, but on my OP6 exposure limit is 15 seconds...

    thank you

    sadly, the is no bulb mode on any of the smartphones, as far as i know.
    if you want better results, then you would have to use an intervalometer app from play Store and take multiple 30s shots and painfully stack them, although there are some programs in pc that automatically do that for you

    Like @Nikhil Seenivas said you will need interval shooting on a smartphone...
    And Camera FV-5 offers that... ;D

    Did this test Startrail with OP3, in my backyard...
    240 RAW Photos @ 17sec., shot over a time span of two hours, edited in Lightroom and blended with The Gimp...

    Hope to put it to a real test this Summer vacation somewhere with less lightpollution and some nice scenery... 8D

    P.s. FV-5 supports 30sec. On some phones up to 60 sec. ;D

    Yesterday morning I was out shooting the Milky Way at 5am near Taylor's Island, MD and I decided I'd try the long exposure feature in Pro Mode, so I set it to 30", 3200 iso, infinity focus and I mounted it to my tripod using an adapter I 3d printed and I gave it a shot.
    I initially tried directly illuminating the road with my headlamp but it was too bright so I pointed it straight up for about 2 seconds and there was just enough soft light to subtly illuminate the road.
    I think its really cool that you don't need a really expensive camera or really expensive phone to get decent Milky Way pictures.
    The DNG was processed using Adobe Lightroom.
