Default Looking for a Olympus reflex camera


I'm searching a Olympus reflex camera which must have an unlimited exposure time.

All the cameras I have find have the exposure time up to 8 min.. but I don't now if there are any camera that putting an automatic cable you can increase that time.

I'm looking forward your replies.

There are practical limits, with digital cameras, to the length of exposure that one can use even when in bulb mode. You may need (ugh) film for your purpose.

easy does on film. it still has greater dynamic range then just about all digital cameras today. :shock:

an 8 minute exposure would probably cause the noise floor to rise substantially due to heat from running the imager.

yep, there are some things film still surpasses digital at.
