I just read somewhere that the bulb mode only goes for 30 seconds. . .thats not right, is it?
I want to be able to take exposures of several mins.
So, for anyone who has a 7D, any feedback on this would be great.
Thanks,
Max

I have had my 7D only 2 weeks now. In Manual mode, the bulb feature is available. The shutter must be held down for the duration of the exposure. I just tried it on mine, and got tired of holding down the shutter button after about a minute and a half. I need to get a shutter release cable. Here's where the confusion may be coming from: this is a direct quote from the 7D owners manual:

"The monitor is blankduring the exposure and remains blank after the exposure for up to 30 seconds while noise- reduction processing is applied to the image.

Okay, thanks!
