"Mirror Lock up- Does anyone use this with shutter release?"


New HArtford, US
          

While shooting I notice I can get sharper images with very low shutter speeds with exposure delay mode. I don't understand why MLU is on the release mode dial. I don't think it works as well as exposure delay as it requires you to press shutter again to take exposure possibly moving camera in the process.

Now on a tripod with remote release there may be a case for it...micro vibrations from mirror may need more than 1 sec to dissipate or you could expose the exact moment you want without micro-vibrations from mirror.
Am I missing something? Does anyone turn dial to MLU and shoot with shutter release button?

Mirror lockup would work best with a remote release for the reasons you mentioned. I always use a remote with MLU, either a wired or wireless.

I don’t think you’re missing anything John. I would think the optimal way to use MUP mode is with a remote corded release and tripod.

I personally only have the ML-L3 from when I had my D80. So I have the remote mode setup to use MUP with dual press of the ML-L3 button. But I guess the 2 second delay mode would accomplish pretty much the same thing as far as mirror vibrations are concerned.

If pressed for lack of anything else, I'd shoot MirrorUp with the camera release. But I always pack both the wired and wireless remotes in the bag, so I rarely do so.
