Yesterday I stumbled upon our old Canon EOS 300D Digital SLR Camera. So I started taking photos, built a remote release (see previous post) and, just some minutes ago, set up a gallery2 gallery. There are plugins for Adobe Lightroom that make it possible to directly export to gallery2! How useful!
You may also register, comment and rate my photos as soon as you have registered. If you’re searching for a place to upload your own photos, feel free to ask me for some storage.
Today I wanted to do some long-time exposures. Since I can only choose exposure times of up to 30 seconds, I have to use the so called “bulb” mode, which just exposes as long is I keep the button pressed. I can not hold perfectly still for tens (or tons) of minutes, so I usedTutorial (german) as an inspiration and built my own remote release trigger using a small wood piece as a base, a button and a switch, a cable with a 2.5mm jack I got from an infrared receiver and loads of hot glue to make it comfortable to hold. Have a look.
This should also fit for most other cameras of the Canon EOS series, but there are some exceptions.
