    Hi all,
    I saw a thunderstorm rolling in and thought I'd try out the Bulb Mode Live View mode on the E-M5. I played with a couple different settings, but couldn't get it figured out. I had it set to M mode for full manual. After I pressed the shutter release I saw a darkened frame (I had closed down the aperture to f22 since there was still a fair amount of ambient light), then I saw a brighter frame and then it seemed like it just stopped. Shouldn't it keep going until I press the shutter release again?

    I haven't had time to look for a tutorial and my manual (the joke that it is) is in another room. Does anyone know of a how-to video or a simple menu setting I haven't tried?

    OK, I found it. Adjust the shutter speed dial until it reads "Bulb" instead of a speed. Duh!

    The T-storm blew right through with no cool strikes. Maybe I'll make a "how-to" video if we get another one.
