I've owned a Canon EOS 70D for two weeks, but when I wanted to make a long exposure of the Geminid meteors I couldn't find the BULB Mode. Only a maximum of 30s shutter speed.

So my question is: Is there actually a Bulb Mode on the 70d?

ps: I'd shoot at "M" mode.


According to the online manual, the B on the mode dial will set it to Bulb mode. Have a look at page 24 in this document.

  • Ah, allright. Thanks! Also thanks for the great manual. :)

    @MikaldL no problems - there should be a printed version in the box your camera came with.

  • There was, but not this version which contains more information about the camera.

    The full instruction manual is included in PDF form on the EOS Camera Instruction Manuals Disk (DVD-ROM) that should have also been in the box with your camera.
