Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Bulb mode with specific times, part of Performance Tuning Your Canon Digital SLR.
- Another great feature that is only found in…the 5DS and 5DS R,…is bulb mode with specific times.…This seems like such a simple thing and,…it's amazing, we finally have it,…and I'm excited to share it with you.…Now, we've talked already about the remote shutter…and this, for me, makes bulb mode easy.…Now, what is bulb mode?…Well, it's about achieving exposures…longer than 30 seconds.…When you're shooting in aperature priority…or shutter speed or manual mode,…the maximum shutter speed allowed is 30 seconds.…
If you want to go beyond that,…you need to move to bulb mode.…And bulb mode allows exposures, basically,…as long as you want to go beyond that.…But what the problem is that we find is that,…if I do a two second timer for example,…I can touch the camera without using a remote shutter.…Two seconds go by, it takes the frame,…up to 30 seconds it stops and there you have your image.…But this is the problem that we've had for years,…is that, if I don't have a remote shutter…and I want a 60 second exposure,…I actually have to hold the shutter down the entire time.…
