    Have you read the user manual prior to asking these questions? – laurencemadill Dec 29 '16 at 10:31
  • Had a look through the user manual contents page but cannot find the bulb mode or burst mode section. – L.Halfpenny Dec 29 '16 at 10:36
  • for future references you can always look up PDF version of manual and search for keyword dropbox.com/s/6xq9n08r4qaogj6/… – aaaaaa Aug 28 '17 at 17:55

Bulb is positioned on the shutter speed dial as the slowest shutter speed, way down just past the 30" second shutter speed. It is a long way down there speaking of rotation.

Because it is inconveniently so far down, and to come back up, there is also an X speed next to it. This X is the selected flash sync shutter speed, and on D3300, probably always shows as 1/200 second. So in some cases, for fast convenience, you may not need to come all the way back up. (but selected shutter speed applies only to M and S modes)

Set to Manual mode (M), rotate command dial to the left (pp. 68 and 71 of User's Manual).
