Using a piece of card to end the exposure also occurred to me but if I understand the OP correctly the shutter button has to be held down during the exposure & that is where the potential shaking comes from ??

Exactly, I don't know why everybody suggests the black card trick, the shaking of the end and the beginning doesn't worry me (it can be eliminated with self-shutter too), the issue is that (without remote), I need to hold the button down during the exposure.

They should have added the option in menus, so people could choose, if they need 2 presses or one long press.
