Is there any risk of damage to the sensor by long 4+ minute exposures?

Hi Bruce,

No! Assuming you don't aim the camera at the sun and make a 4+ minute exposure which would be extremely over exposued anyway.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

I went on youtube and watched Harold Davis lecture on Night Photography ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdn3gJxSzew&feature=related ) and want to try some of the techniques he described. Some had 4 to 8 minute exposures. Audince member asked that question but he couldn't answer for all cameras. Figured I'd better ask some one first.
