Hold Down the Shutter Release with an Eraser and Hair Tie

Need to hold down the shutter release for extended periods of time, but don’t want to shell out money for a remote shutter release? Flickr user Dennis Calvert found that a pencil eraser and hair tie do the job well, allowing you to do star trail photographs with bulb mode.

Do you use a similar “hack” to keep your shutter release button pressed?
