    Bulb setting on the E 410

    I can't figure out for the life of me how to set the bulb setting on the E 410. I want to keep my exposure open for long periods of time.

    In the owners manual on page 33 it reads "The shutter speed can be set to 1/4000 - 60" (sec.) or [Bulb]. I can't find a Bulb setting any where.

    Any help on this would be appreciated.

    With the E-510, the instructions are:

    You can take a picture with a bulb exposure time in which the shutter stays open as long as you hold down the shutter button. Set the shutter speed to [BULB] in the M mode.

    The instructions on the E-410 say the same thing but I can't find the [BULB] in M mode any were on the LCD.

    Turn the control dial all the way clockwise while in M mode.

    It's not on the LCD as a selectable option. Turn the control dial past 60 seconds and Bulb should appear on the LCD.
