Quick question. In Bulb-mode, Is it really possible to open the shutter by pressing the shutter-button once, and close it by pressing it a second time? I know this is the way it works with a remote, but it seems you have to keep the shutter-button (on the camera) pressed during the full exposure?

Yes, this is possible. You do not need to keep the shutter button pressed in BULB mode.

I dont know what camera you have.

With my NEX 5 and 7 you MUST press the shutter button to keep the shutter open.

Yes you can do that with a remote.

Well... for a 30 min exposure you do not need to end the exposure, the camera will end it for you when 30 min have passed.

If you want to do repeat long exposures with the same exposure time (for astrophotography for example) take a look at this little remote: http://astrus.bymac.org
