Hi folks, I've looked through the manual, and different places, but can't find how to do long exposures with my 70D.
For long exposures at night, I have the "apps"on my android, but everything I've read refers to cable release etc..
Help please?

Hi Bob. Welcome to the CameraLabs forum.

I'll start with a disclaimer: it's been a while since I was part of the Canon ecosystem. I'd be surprised if you can get more than a 30 second manual exposure with just the camera. I've used a remote switch with success on the 40D but my own preferred solution for astrophotography was tethered shooting using, if I remember the name correctly, the EOS Utility software on a laptop. If the app doesn't provide what you need and you have a laptop available then that might be the way to go?

Bob.

Bob, Thanks for the welcome.. I think I have found the way (or at least A way) to do what I want with longer exposures. I have to use the Canon Camera connect app on my droid( I think that is the name)... but will have to hold the "button" down for the proscribed time. I'll try it out once I get some decent weather here. Thanks, Bob.(Mk.2) :)
