"Problem using Remote for long exposure" Thu 29-Nov-12 03:10 PM by Steve6344
I am using a 3rd party remote for long exposures.
Using ND filter, I put the camera in Manual and bulb mode and see the "--" indicating bulb mode when the shooting dial is in remote.
What I expected was that the first time I pressed the remote the exposure would start and the second time I pressed the remote the exposure would stop
When the exposure was about 30 seconds (timed on my iphone) (which is the limit for automatically timed exposures) the final picture didn't come up on the LCD. I pressed the review arrow button but still nothing came up on LCD. I turned camera off and on and found that camera had taken 2 images.
I tried same procedure with a 40 sec and 60 sec exposure and had no problem. Could review on LCD and only one picture taken.
Is it a problem with the remote, the camera, or something I'm doing?
-- Afterwards I was looking at the data in View NX 2 and the first image in the 'bad' pair was 30 seconds which is correct and the 2nd image was about 7 seconds which is probably the delay until I turned the camera off.
