Hi all. With regard to landscape or other static subject photography, does the combination of live view and a 3-second exposure delay replace my "old" way of triggering the shutter such as mirror-up combined with a remote release.

Specifically, and for example, say I am setting up a landscape shot with a D800E and 24-70 lens, and my goal regarding this question is to get the sharpest detail possible with regard to eliminating the effects of any camera movement/vibrations as best as possible.

My current method is to set up the shot, focus in live view, initiate the shutter release by gently pressing the release button, then taking hands off and allowing the exposure delay to complete the process.

Everything locked down on sturdy tripod, of course.

Thanks,
Don
