Re: Best way to get >30 sec exposure on 5n?

Like others have said, just go to Manual mode and choose BULB.  I don't think holding down the button for X seconds is feasible at all, so definitely get an IR remote.  If you don't trust buying random remotes from no name manufacturers, you could always buy the Sony brand remote, which at $30, is a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of our kit.
