Since bulb exposures will have more noise than usual, the image will look
rough or grainy.
Bulb exposures may result in grainy images due to picture noise. If C.Fn-
02 [Long exp. noise reduction] is set to [1: Auto noise reduction] or
[2: On] (p.151), noise can be reduced.
For bulb exposures, using Remote Switch RS-80N3 or Timer Remote
Controller TC-80N3 (both optional) is recommended.
