    To: All:

    I just purchased a Canon PowerShot SD1000. I would like to take a 15
    second exposure. I followed the User's Guide as I understood it and
    set the time delay to 10 seconds and then a long shutter speed of 15
    seconds. I pressed the shutter button and the lens retracted and it
    appeared that the camera shut off. I've had success with other
    functions available with the camera that I have tried but not this
    one. Any suggestions?

    As you might guess I'm trying to see what kind of night sky exposure I
    will get.

    check the power saving features. I don't have this camera, but other
    Canons have auto power down features, that you can adjust or turn off

    I think you answered my question. I turned the power-down feature off
    and the camera appeared to function as I wanted it to. Now if the
    night sky is clear tonight, I'll give try to see what I can do.
