Shooting Long Exposures (Bulb) (EOS M5)



With bulb exposures, shots are exposed for as long as you hold down the shutter button.
Do not aim the camera at intense light sources, such as the sun on a clear day or an intense artificial light source.
Doing so may damage the image sensor or other internal components.
  • Mount the camera on a tripod or take other measures to keep it still and prevent camera shake. In this case, also disable image stabilization.
  • Images from bulb exposures may have more noise and look grainy. Noise can be reduced by setting [Long exp. noise reduction] to [AUTO] or [ON].
  • When [Touch Shutter] is set to [Enable], shooting is started by touching the screen once and stopped by touching it again. Be careful not to move the camera when touching the screen.
You can also use a Remote Controller (sold separately) for bulb exposures.



The procedure for bulb shooting is explained below.
1. Set the camera's power switch to [ON].



2. Hold down the mode dial release button and turn the mode dial to [M].



3. Turn the [ ] dial to the left to set the shutter speed to [BULB].



4. Shots are exposed for as long as you hold the shutter button all the way down. The elapsed exposure time is displayed during exposure.
