The Manual Exposure Assistance is an approximation. We recommend checking the pictures 
on the playback screen.
∫ About [B] (Bulb)
If you set the shutter speed to [B], the shutter stays open while the shutter button is 
pressed fully (up to about 120 seconds).
The shutter closes if you release the shutter button.
Use this when you want to keep the shutter open for a long time to take pictures of 
fireworks, a night scene etc.
We recommend using a tripod or the remote shutter (DMW-RSL1; optional) when you take 
pictures with the shutter speed set to [B]. Refer to 
 for information about the remote 
If you set the shutter speed to [B], [B] is displayed on the screen.
When you take pictures with the shutter speed set to [B], use a sufficiently charged battery. 
When you take pictures with the shutter speed set to [B], noise may become visible. To avoid 
picture noise, we recommend setting [LONG SHTR NR] in the [REC] Mode menu to [ON] 
before taking pictures
