You have given no details about the camera equipment, so there is little we can suggest except to look in the camera manual. If this facility is available, it will tell you.

I just got a Nikon D7100, my shutter stays open on


Sure you did not turn the dial to mirror up?
Always chack all settings on the camera, if something unexpected happens. Like you can press the shutter release button and it won't take a picture. You left the dial in the setting for remote release. I can't believe there is anything wrong with the camera. Just a setting.

How do you take a 15 or 30 minute exposure with the Nikon D5000 and how do you set the remote up to snap the picture in this kind of mode?


For really long exposures (longer than 30 seconds) you need to set the camera to the Manual exposure mode and set the shutter speed to bulb. This keeps the shutter open as long as you hold down the shutter release button. Since this is inconvenient, a much easier way is with the remote.

Press the [info] button to bring up the shooting information display. Press the [i] button to put the cursor into the display. Use the cursor keys to move to the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press the OK button. The Quick-response remote mode (marked with an icon of the remote control) fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. the Delayed remote mode (marked with the remote and "2s") gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back when taking self-portraits.

In either of the remote modes, when the shutter speed is set to bulb the shutter opens when you press the button on the remote and stays open until you press the button again (or the camera battery dies). This way you can press the button, go and do something else for a while, then come back and press the button again.

Information on the release modes is in the "Release Mode" section of the manual (page 65 in my copy). Information on using the remote control is in the "Self-Timer and Remote Modes" section of the manual (page 67 in my copy).

Is it possible to achieve a 20sec shutter release via remote control


With or without the remote control, in the M exposure mode you can select the bulb/time setting. Without the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the shutter release and holds it open while you keep the shutter release pressed. With the remote, this opens the shutter when you press the button on the remote and keeps it open until you press the button again. This allows you to keep the shutter open for up to 10 minutes.

Hi, I would like to take a timed exposer, maybe for as long as five minutes......Thanks


In manual exposure mode, set the shutter speed to bulb. This is the next slower shutter speed past thirty seconds. The bulb setting will keep the shutter open as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

It's easier if you have a remote control. With the ML-L3 wireless remote, you can press the button once to open the shutter and again to close it. Most wired remotes have a lock so you can lock the shutter open until you want to close it.

My Praktica LLC mirror locks up and won't return. The shutter stays open partly or fully.


do you have exact model - this maybe bulb which allows the shutter to stay open for as long as the shutter release is pressed - or mirror lock setting - for macro work to avoid any camera shake when the mirror moves - by locking the mirror

Shutter stays open


According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

Shutter speed


When you set the camera to "Full Manual" mode, you should be able to dial in your shutter speeds, for most film cameras, including the N55 30 Seconds is the slowest shutter speed. If your camera features a "Bulb" mode, then the shutter stays open as long as you are holding down the shutter release button.

By "stayed up", do you mean that the mirror remained in the up position so that you could not see anything in the viewfinder or do you mean that the shutter actually remained open? I do not remember the exact features on your camera, but in general, this is what I would do.

1) Remove the film from the camera and take a picture. Note if you see anything in the viewfinder. If you see nothing, the mirror is in the up position. Verify this by removing the lens and opening the door on the camera back. Look through the lens hole. If you can see through the rectangular hole at the film plane, the shutter is open. If instead you something is obstructing the hole, the shutter is closed. In any case DO NOT TOUCH THE SHUTTER! The shutter is what is covering the hole.

2) If the mirror is in the up position, check to see if your camera has a feature that allows locking the mirror in the up position. Some cameras have this feature to allow use of lenses with very short focal lengths. If this is the case, simply unlock the mirror.

3) If the shutter is the problem, your shutter speed may be set to "T", which stands for time. In the time exposure mode, you press the shutter release once to open the shutter and a second time to close the shutter. Cameras with a "T" setting also have a "B" setting, which stands for bulb. This is a throwback to the old days when it was common to use air-powered shutter releases rather then cable releases. The bulb was a rubber bulb that you squeezed to force air through a tube and push a pin to activate the shutter. The "B" setting keeps the shutter open as long as you hold the shutter release in, but as soon as you take your finger off the shutter release, the shutter closes. Both of these settings are used to make timed exposures. If you find that the problem was that the shutter was set to "T", set the shutter speed to 1/25th second or so and try again. The following sequence should occur; the mirror will flip up and the viewfinder image will disappear, the shutter will open for the prescribed time and close, the mirror will return to the down position and you will again see through the viewfinder.

If this does not work, you may need to take it in for repair.

I have two different lens one is stronger than the other.Sometimes I take the perfect picture then other times not so good.How do I know which lens to use for close up or i want a distant shot at a cl


Do you mean that, you press the shutter release once and the shutter stays open until you press the shutter release a second time. If so, check your shutter speed setting. If it is set to "T" (Timed Exposure) the camera is working correctly. Change your shutter speed to an appropriate setting, such as 1/125. If that does not solve the problem, you might need to take it in for repair.
