    I said 30 seconds at F8 for some night pictures. But the AE-1 only goes down to 2 seconds. Had me head scratching.
    The EOS650 does indeed have a 30 second setting. So that's obviously the camera I used. Makes me feel better.

    Anything over two or three seconds you can time with your smart phone timer. One hand on the phone, the other on the shutter button or cable release.

    Once I set up the shoot I let the timer on the camera do it's thing. I would never have touched the shutter button and never had a cable release.

    You should get one. They're not expensive. While I was buying a Nikon-branded one (for $15) I saw another offer for a third-party make for $3. So I bought that one too. The cheap one works exactly like the expensive one.

    My AE-1 has become finicky. And the EOS650 doesn't need one.
    And I'm trying to save every penny to get at least a Canon 20D and hopefully a 40D.
