I forgot to get the remote when I picked up my D50 last week. stopped by the shop today to get it.

(don't get me started about the $65 remote for my N90S.)

asked about shooting on BULB with it, so we tried it on a store camera. we couldn't get it to work on BULB. tried it on a D70 with no luck. hmmmmm.

anyway, got it home and tried it on mine. success! push button once to open shutter, push it again to close it. not sure what he did wrong at the shop, but I'll call him tomorrow and educate him

my main reason for asking about the BULB setting is, a church puts on a nice fireworks show every 4th in a field next to my house.

I got some nice pics with my little Coolpix 3200 this year with its standard 4 second fw setting, but looking forward to next year now.
