"3100 - live viewer and view finder"



I need help.

When I take pictures with the live viewer, the shutter speed becomes must slower than when i take using the view finder. Even when the setting is the same. It happens also in P mode.

Can anybody explain?

Are you judging the shutter speed by the sound or the actual shutter speed shown in the EXIF data of images? When you press the shutter release to make an exposure in Live View, the mirror must go down, then back up along with the shutter opening and closing. All this makes for a longer "sound" when in Live View. The actual shutter speed is the same.

So, in terms of vibration reduction, there's no advantage to shooting in Live View?

Would it be reasonable to say that it is the same with the 5100?

I think the D800 and D4 have a new type of Live View where the mirror stays up like you would get with mirror lockup.
