Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Hi Rich, yes you can use the remote to get time exposures in manual mode.
You will get two options related to wireless remote control shooting and Quiet Shutter mode, which dampens the normal shutter-release sounds.
Your choice of Release mode determines when and how that action occurs.
On the Information screen and Live View display, the current Release mode is indicated by the icons labeled in the figure. Note that the Live View screen in the figure shows the default data-display mode; if your screen shows a different assortment of data, press the Info button to cycle through the available display modes.
