Nex5-n/Nex-7 max. exposure times in Bulb mode?
Mar 22, 2012

Hi. I am currently considering Nex-5n or Nex-7 to use with some legacy lenses. The only take is that I am interested in (very) long exposures (I typically do anything between 20-60 minutes with ND filters).

Is anybody doing this kind of photography with this camera (any comments?) and can anybody comment what is the longest exposure time possible using bulb mode?

If the long exposures mentioned are indeed possible with this cameras, what kind of accessories would I need in order to keep the shutter open for such long exposure? Any remotes? Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for all the kind help and the comments.
