Default Canon G5 Shutter Speed Question

Does the Canon G5 (or any in the Gx series) have a Bulb setting for longer than 15 second exposures? All I've found so far is a cryptic reference to a "continuous shutter" setting that is available, but there was no explanation as to what that really means. I need the ability to hold the shutter open for in excess of 2 minutes at times. Can the G5 do that?

i wouldn't think so
i own a G3, and i guess that's the maximum
was trying to capture a few thunderstrikes - was quite limited with the 15secs.

If you want any more you'll need a (d)SLR...

Guild is correct, 15 seconds is all you get on the G5.
