Brian, look at your Exif data. You were in APERTURE priority, with aperture set at f/8. And the ISO was at 1000. The camera thought you had the lens cap on. Set it to "P" with auto ISO and let the camera work its magic.

Seaton Square at
night, according to my E-M5, which did NOT like doing this, and refused
to do any more under these conditions ...

For reasons obscure I woke
at about 5 am and looked out over our new balcony.

There was patchy
cloud cover with the moon somewhat reluctant to show much, but overall
it was an intriguing sight. Must record it, I thought.

Ahem. Left WB
where it was at shadow, set asa at 1000, aperture priority.

Held M5 on
balustrade and pressed the button. ONE shot only, worked; otherwise it
would not allow me to use the viewfinder, shone a red light into the
darkness, and basically said - go back to bed brother, I refuse.

apart from trying to find that tiny on/off switch in the dark with a
fingernail ...

I threatened that I would load film into the OM4Ti, and
the threat was ignored.

I guess I need to learn about manual control
at night if I am to have better success at this game.

Still thinking
about my response to the Luminar thread

Cheers, Brian
