I know the subject line is a bit vague here. As it is today (as far as I know) on Nikon cameras its not possible to take a LONG exposure without using a wireless or wired remote. If I want to take a 37 minute long exposure, it would be great if there was just a menu option on my D800 where I can just manually enter this. It would be a lot easier than being chained to your camera with a stopwatch. Why isn't this possible.

30 second limit seems to be old fashioned, and I agree there is room for improvement in future models.

they can implement an auto turn off feature if the temps are high.
