Anyone having any luck? I'll be going back out in a couple of hours, but no luck catching any so far. I've seen quite a few, though.
I have to stick to 30s exposures, otherwise I'm sure I would have gotten something so far.

:(

I've never tried to shoot the Perseid, but I've seen so many times. The shooting stars are so fleeting. I'm a newbie here, but is it possible that with a 30, the shooting stars are actually disappearing, through their movement?

I don't think it's like old school bulb. I haven't tried it yet check the manual, but I remember reading on this site on someones post you click to open the shutter then click to close.

That's only with a wireless remote.

Without a remote, you have to hold it down.

Wired remotes have a slide lock to hold it down.

unless it's very small it should be able to show up
