Bulb mode

I have a question. When you make a photo with the Bulb mode, you have to get the button pressed all the time, that's not useful for the kind of night photos I want to make, so there is a way to use the Bulb mode without having pressed the button all the time? I know that in some cameras, you only have to press one time at the beggining and another time to "stop" the photo, is something similar with the K-30?

You will have to change from the default 'Mode 1':
Mode1:Exposure continues while the shutter release button is pressed. (default setting)

to 'Mode 2':
Mode2: Exposure starts with the first press of the shutter release button and ends with a second press of the shutter release button.

This is done in the Custom Menu Settings, Item 7.
