My camera can't take a bulb shot.
The longest exposure is one second under the normal setting.
So I use the camera into Star Light mode,
which enables me to select from
a 15-, 30-, or 60-second exposure.
So this is what I always do.
1. Set the mode to Star Light, choosing 15-sec exposure.
2. Release the shutter.
3. Cover the lens with my hand in 2 or 3 seconds.
4. And wait for 12 or 13 seconds, keeping covering the lens.
Very primitive way with a hi-tech digital camera, isn't it? ;-)
