The title says it. Say you are in the middle of waiting for a 30 second exposure. How can you stop it?

Good question. I usually turn the camera off. If there's a better way I'd be interested too.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

During the exposure every button and dial on my 7D is unresponsive. Besides turning off the power switch I have discovered opening the memory card door stops it.

Power off and on seems to be the only way. I wouldnt open up the door as it can cause write issues that could affect the entire card.

And record it and post it on YouTube because I bet it would be amazing.

On/off. Alternatively, use bulb mode and time the exposure yourself. :)
