Long Exposures with an e510?

It only maxes out at 60 seconds (Right?). What if I want a 30 minute star trail?

Unfortunatly the most you can do is 8 minutes, and you need the RM-1 remote or the cable remote (RC-1??). Its only the e3 that has max 30min exposure.

RM-1 won't work will it? How does the camera recognize the remote?

I'm still trying to figure this out...does this mean I can go for longer than 8 minutes?

Rhino

as i mentioned you can ONLY go up to 8 minutes. No longer. Its ONLY the e3 which allows you to go up to 30minutes. So for all Olympus dslr's (excluding the e3) the max is 8 minutes only.

60 seconds is the best you can get without the remote. Any longer than 60 sec you need the remote.
