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.

Normally, BULB mode is when you have to keep your finger on the button, and TIME mode is when you do two separate button presses.

The NEX has a TIME mode which Sony mistakenly labelled as Bulb.

I don't think whoever wrote the firmware is an experienced photographer.
