Just wanted to give a quick post on this guy as it's cheap ($9.99 / £12.00) , and works brilliantly. It's an IR remote, so you do need line of sight to the camera, but it does support bulb mode! I forget how much the official Sony one is, but I remember it was a bit ridiculously priced last time I checked. Haven't tested it outside at distance yet, but it works just fine if you're standing near the camera like you would for landscape work.

P.S. You do need to turn "Remote Control" option to 'ON'.. I think it's in tab #6 (toolbox) / page 3, on the A7R.
