    Set it on T or B. I can't remember if that lens has T. For T, use the cable release to start the exposure and then use the cable release to end the exposure. For B, use the cable release to start the exposure and hold the cable release until end the exposure.

    Welcome to APUG.

    Yes, it has just B. So I have to hold the cable release until the end. Oook :smile:
    Thanks so much !!

    p.s. should I be worried about vibration during holding?

    Buy a shutter release cable that has a lock on it (typically a small ring at the base of the trigger). In the locked position, when you press the trigger it stays there until you release the lock.

    Yes, you should worry about vibration during holding. Don't breakdance around the camera until after the shutter is closed. :wink:

    Use the cable release locking mechanism and leave it alone until the exposure time is up. Then release the cable release to close the shutter again.

    Use a tripod or set it down on a table.

    Damn. And I am a breakdancer who just love to take pictures over 1 min :smile:

    Any tips for googling about shutter release cable that has a lock on it?

    Yes, I am using tripod and shutter release. But I was expecting that it will work as on T.
    But looks like not.
    Thanks so much everybody for fast replies!
