OH yea canon cameras come with those STILL even the new ones. It's a little rubber thing you can attach to the camera strap, it's cheap but effective when needed, and again, the 1V actually has a metal shutter blade bulky into the camera to shut light out for long exposures.

Don't think my Mamiya had one though, however I'm not often doing super long exposures with that.
