This complements my last post which seeks to both optimize & obtain sharp in focus shots.

1a) Basically, do all mirror up/MLU shots require a tripod because the viewfinder is disabled? Any exceptions?

1b) Accordingly, do you always close the viewfinder eyepiece shutter?

2) Self-timer usage only with a tripod? Please confirm and elevate my understanding.

Anything else from the components listed below require a tripod?

Which of the following (singularly or in combination) comprise an effective solution?

a) Self Timer

b) Exposure Delay Mode

c) Mirror up

d) Live View

e) Cabled or wireless release

Please share you preferred combination complete with settings.

Is there any combo that would be considered overkill or redundant?

What from the above would help produce more satisfactory results when heldheld?

Thanks for further contributing!
