Time the end of the exposure to suit the subject. Use for night landscapes and fireworks. In M mode, set the shutter speed to [BULB]. # Cautions • Maximum 15 minutes (default) • The maximum exposure time of bulb shooting depends on ISO sensitivity. • To reduce camera shake for bulb shooting, mounting the camera on a stable tripod or using a remote cable (sold separately) is recommended. • The following features are not available during long exposures: Sequential shooting/self-timer shooting/AE bracket shooting/image stabilizer/ flash bracketing. Noise in images While shooting at slow shutter speeds, noise may appear on-screen. These phenomena are caused when current is generated in those sections of the image pickup device that are not normally exposed to light, resulting in a rise in temperature in the image pickup device or image pickup device drive circuit. This can also occur when shooting with a high ISO setting in a high-temperature environment. To reduce this noise, the camera activates the noise reduction function. g “c Custom Menu” (P. 68)
