KM question

Can you use an ir remote on the KM for exposures longer than 30sec (bulb mode) just like a cable switch?

Yes you can, just tried this out on my desk

Thanks for asking

here's a simplified procedure

- dial to M
- dial Shutter Exposure to Bulb (listed after 30")
- set Drive Mode to Remote control
- hold remote button down until you want to let go
- let go and shutter will close

cheers, did not know it could do this!
