This is a camera setting issue.

 

Please make sure the camera dial is set to a position where BULB is possible.

 

Make sure mirror lock is turned off on the camera as well, this is not supported and may be the cause.

 

Keep us posted.

This is most definitely a camera setting issue, no doubt about that.  We just need to figure out which setting.

 

Using the exact same camera settings, can you take BULB images using only the camera buttons only while the camera is disconnected from the computer?

 

Set us a picture of your dial settings.

DigiCamControl uses "PTP Mode" - which totally Disables BYN.  So, you also need to ensure that PTP Mode is OFF.

ptp mode is on the cam or in digicamcontrol? i dont' have thi option on the cam, i have to uninstall digicam controll?

 i read on the web that the nus dslr are automatically in ptp mode

Ummm, I see you have a lens.  Remove the lens and try again.  I'm not sure if this will make a difference but it is worth a try.

 

You seem to be doing everything correctly. 

 

Regards.

Take a look at this thread.

 

This user had the same issue and he ended up reseting his camera and everything worked after that.  It is worth a try.
