Multiple issue session

Question

I'm zipping and emailing the logs now and will include the URL to this thread.

I went out last night for a session and had multiple issues, there are about 6 or 7 restarts thus the large number of log files with dates of the 1st and 2nd in the zip.

I started with the Camera on Manual mode, then ended up on Bulb mode and got the best results.   It's a Canon 70D.

My T5i does not have a Bulb position on the rotary dial. Bulb is just another Manual exposure. This is better because I don't need to keep touching the camera to change between B and M. Other cameras have both shooting modes on the dial and you may need to adjust the dial depending on the type of shooting that you are doing.

If your camera has both Bulb and Manual shooting modes then you need to use the Bulb position for exposures that are timed by BYE and Manual mode for Tv exposures that are timed by the camera. Exposures that have durations between 1 and 30 seconds can be shot either way, but less than a second needs to be M and > 30 seconds needs to be B. Ugly, but true.

BTW, as a rule, if you can have the camera time the exposure you should since it typically provides more consistent timing than the PC.
