How To Take Amazing Night Shots With Two Buttons
One of the ways to do this is to use an Intervalometer, and another, more frugal way, is to set the camera on continuous shooting mode and hold the shutter release button. This can be quite painful for your index finger so here is how to make a shutter release from a button.
At the end of this, you would attach the “Shutter Release Band” as shown in the images. The buttons press the shutter release button nicely and firmly, and the rubber band holds it in place and apply the required pressure.
I myself have a wireless remote for my camera. But during a workshop that I conducted for participants with all different brands and models of cameras I wanted a universal and simple solution. This one costs about 12p (and hangout time with grandma is free)
Previously I tried placing a piece of folded paper or Polystyrene bellow the rubber band. It worked for some cameras (sometimes…) but for others it didn’t work at all. Sadly, every camera has a different shaped body and the curves near the shutter release button differ. But also the lace grip makes it easier to place & remove the buttons on the shutter release.
