You don't need to buy a wireless remote — you can buy a wired remote. For just a trigger button with a lock (to hold the button down), you can find 3rd party wired shutter releases for under $10 US, such as from Vivitar, Pixel, Vello, and other brands.

You can, for very little money, build your own wired remote control, eg. by following these instructions, or any others that a google search for "canon diy remote" brings up. This remote has a momentary action switch, and a two way switch for arbitrarily long exposures. I successfully made such a remote with my own two left hands.

What's the minimum exposure time that can be achieved in bulb mode? Technically, the minimum exposure time is probably limited by the speed that a person can press and release the shutter button (or remote shutter release). I assume this is somewhere on the order of 0.1 seconds (1/10 shutter speed) or so. However, this is highly variable and difficult to ...

Yea... you can check out ebay or any local shop that sells camera equipment. You get wired remotes with a display screen that lets u take extremely long exposures (ranging from few seconds to 99 hours). These are best for exposures. Specially long ones. I take milky way shots so i use this remote to avoid any shake in my images.

The canon 760D has bulb function that you have to hold down, so if I want to do a long exposure I have a wired remote, Shoot RS- 60E3 Wired Remote £3.59, that will lock open the shutter until you release it, if you go back and press the shutter button to close the shutter you could move the camera and spoil your shot.

If pulling the cord of the RS60-E3 out of the camera jack solves the problem then the problem is not in the camera, it is with the RS60-E3. What happens if you immediately plug the cord back in? Does the shutter open back up for another exposure? It sounds like the shutter button is just getting stuck and takes a while to fully release. If you only recently ...

Bulb mode allows you to control when the exposure starts and finishes, which means that you control the shutter-speed. Together with ISO and Aperture, you still need to balance the 3 parameters and get a proper exposure. See Exposure Triangle if you are not familiar with the concept. To be clear, you do not reduce the shutter-speed to bulb. You take control ...

Your question isn't exactly clear on your objective, so I will provide a few potential solutions. Use your cameras histogram to judge the exposure. See: How and why do you use an image histogram? Calculate the proper exposure. See: What is the "exposure triangle"? or Long Exposure Tutorial Use a neutral density filter. See: What are neutral ...

There is a "bulb" setting of sorts on the X-S1 that allows specific shutter times at 1 second intervals to be set. If 15 seconds is too fast but 30 seconds is too long, you can try, for example, 22 seconds or 18 seconds or 20 seconds or 19 seconds until you zero in on what works best. But the longest possible shutter time is 30 seconds (actual exposure time ...

While for long exposures is not that a problem, still you don't want to ruin a 10 minutes shot by accidentally moving the camera while pushing the button again to end the exposition. So, instead of messing with the button itself, your camera has a nice IR receiver that doesn't request you to buy an IR Remote at all if your smartphone happens to have IR ...

Just use 'live view'. And enable touch shutter. And take pictures via touch shutter. Edit: In case you are wondering, I have the same model and that's what I do.
