SLR shutter release

Recommended Posts

Due to not having a remote or cable shutter release for my Canon 450D then I decided to make one (a non-remote version...I aren't that clever)

Having weighed up a few household items I found that most common of accessories, blu-tac and a screw were right for the job.

Simply surround the shutter button with blu tac, insert a nut (bolt) into it, cover the edges of the nut over with blu-tac to hold it in and insert a screw.

This way you can have the button pressed for as long as you like, easy and effective. To stop the exposure undo the screw and enjoy.

One problem...when your ready to end the exposure, having to undo the screw will cause the camera to shake;)

Methinks a "hat over lens" might help here?

no shake, the screw is surprisingly smooth, it only takes a small amount of turn to unlock it : )
