Re: E500 with Remote...Can you activate Bulb?

Hi Djm,

You can only use the bulb mode with a remote control with the E-500 (for exposures longer than 60sec and up to 8 min)). I've bought the Olympus RM-1 for about $25 and it works great! You press "W" to open the shutter and then "T" to close the shutter whenever you're ready (up to 8 minutes exposure). I recommend it, it's very useful and not just for the bulb mode. It's only $22 at Amazon:
