    i have a sony H2 cybershot and was out trying to get a blurred water effect on a local stream using the self timer and a slow 5 second shutter speed and the pics did nothing but come out completely white

    While I can't answer for the almighty, I can tell you that 5 seconds is WAY too long for a daylight shot without a neutral density filter (or likely a whole stack of them) in front of your lens.

    Try this. Go back out again and bracket your shots. Shoot 5 seconds, 4, 3, 2, 1, etc all the way down to 1/60th. Then look at the shots. You will see what is going on, where the sweet spot is.
