    Cameras with Bulb setting

    Major review sites all seem to show minimum shutter speeds as 30 sec, even for cameras like Canon 1D.

    Which cameras have a Bulb setting to allow use of an intervalometer or manual long time exposures?
    Sony DSCR1 bridge camera; Sony Alpha SLT A57; Sony Zeiss 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 lens; Sigma 10-20mm UWA lens; converted Nikon 50mm f2.0 lens; Filters: ND4,ND8,ND1000, CP; Photoshop CS6. 82.7% of statistics are made up!

    30 seconds is the general maximum without using a shutter release (cabled or wireless). Once you plug in a remote release you get access to bulb on most DSLR.

    Most, if not all dSLRs have a Bulb mode. To use bulb mode, it would be best to have a remote shutter cable as that would minimize the shaking that you would be imparting to the camera should you be using the normal shutter.

    Thanks Keefy and Rick,

    Your advice certainly opens up the field. I would expect to be using a cable release, so can now explore further.
