    The same thing, which I dislike, about my Nikon F's. I just use 'B' and a locking cable release. Much easier.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I like the black card or hat idea. The lens cap may be an easier option since it's always with me. But like was said, it's tough for exposures of 4-6 seconds.

    I believe you can also close the shutter by turning the film advance lever. I know you can do this on some of the GW and GSW models, not sure about the III.

    This sound like something that should be posed on the Most over rated feature thread! :o

    Yes this is a bad feature of the camera(s). But I have ruined only a couple exposures out of many by turning the shutter speed ring. Though I have ruined a much higher percentage by advancing the film. I can see where the use of a black hat and film advance method would work quite well.
    I really like using my two Fujis as much as my 4x5 and 5x7 cameras.

    Along with your camera and the aforementioned RB the RZ can join the club for longer than what is it 60sec exposures ?...

    But isn't it just how 'T' settings work ? I think that if you're using T exposures then the possible shake in switching it off will be nothing in the grand scheme of such a long exposure ?

    I use T as then I don't have to bother with a cable release at all

    Somehow I don't think that would be over rated, could be like most annoying?
    Nikon used to use the rotate the shutter speed dial too. Yeah it's not around the lens, but still.

    I had a 'III'. The film advance does indeed close the shutter. I never saw an issue with that. That "feature" is naturally more convenient for longer exposures, but it's workable even for a couple of seconds.
