I am also interested in long exposures at night from my 5N.

Could anyone comment on something I read (can't remember where) that someone bricked their NEX by doing something wrong concerning a remote and or settings related to it.

...and wouldn't holding the shutter button down even for 30 seconds on tripod, allow for enough possible camera shake to ruin the shot?

Benny, you won't brick the camera using a wireless remote. Check out my post. I routinely do long bulb exposures using nex 5n. Have taken 1000 sec exposure too.
