What do you want to keep the shutter open for? Are you looking for shutter lock up or something else?

i dont think there is dedicate BULB mode in XTI. Instead put the dial on M, and decrease the shutter speed to below 30" (30 Seconds..or more than 30 Seconds)

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The moment u hit 30 Seconds and continue to turn the dial bulb will start blinking in the LCD.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Now the shutter stays open as long as u can press the shutter button. A remote is needed here unless u have really steady hands and enuff patience to hold the camera for like 2mins or 5mins or more

Hope this helps



This one i took with a XT holding the shutter for 7 mins. DOnt ask me how i did it..i just didnt move a bit and i was lucky to get this. Tried my luck with a friends XTi and 12-24 sigma

Bulb setting is on page 71 of the XTI manual.

i dont have the xt or the XTi. But if i am right, the AV button or something close to the view finder or one near the right top corner is used for this. Coz the dial will be used to adjust the aperture. Again i could be terribly wrong.

someone with a XT will be really helpful here for u.

Why answer questions like these if you don't know? that's lame.

nymph is simply trying to help you based on her experience of similar cameras in the Canon line up that she owns.

It's equally lame asking a question that is very well covered in the manual.
