    I don't know if anybody can help me but when I try and do a BULB exposure at
    the stars using the REMOTE CAPTURE software (to stop camera shake) the
    Computer keeps telling me "SHOOTING WAS CANCELLED BY THE CAMERA" why is this
    so ?
    It is set to manual focus to get around the same problem in AF. I really
    want to do one of those time laps star swirls if possible.

  2. I don't think the computer is capable of driving a bulb shot. You'll probably
    need to get one of the hardware remotes to do it since you can't really
    manually hold down the button the whole time.
