I just had to point out this: your reference to "Bulb" is wrong. It doesn't refer to flash bulb, but the old bulb shutter trigger. It kind of looked like a blood pressure cuff inflator bulb. The air pressure would trigger the shutter, when set to "B" the shutter would stay open as long as the bulb was held (or air pressure remained). refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulb_%28photography%29

I just want to throw in that 30 seconds is NOT enough to cover yourself with film night photography. I did night photography for one of my assignments in photography 2, and the best shots that turned out came from the 4 to 5 minute shutter speeds. Yes....minutes. And this was at 400 speed film. I bracketed 8 second, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 4 minutes and 5 minutes at F8.

Was hoping to find a good photography podcast. Although I have been an SLR photographer for 40 years I have just moved on to a DSLR and figured this would be a good time to jog the memory and clear out the cobwebs. Sadly, your podcast seems rife with misinformation (yes BULB refers to the rubber air bulb that predates flashbulbs significantly) both historically and photographically. Sorry to say, it just doesn't cut it.
