Thanks Phil. I did have it set but it may have cleared when I used a saved mySet and I didn't notice. I wish theer was some way to view (and edit) all your settings on your computer.

Thanks Paul. In "general" daytime photography I would definitely agree but when shooting point light sources in the dark I think the effect of shutter shock may not be overcome by the overall exposure to quite the same extent. It may not have been shuttershock - I went back another day (another night actually) and had no trouble. I'm very confused.

I was in south London on the pavement about a foot away from a road with cars and busses. No tube trains in this area. Its all a mystery.
