Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Mirror-up mode, part of Learning the Nikon D600 and D610.
- The flapping of the mirror on your DSLR…can lead to camera movement or shake,…which often results in blurring in the shot.…One way to minimize this, is to shoot from a tripod.…And to consider using the Mirror Up Mode.…In this mode, the mirror is raised in your camera,…until you're ready to take a photo.…Once raised though, it means that you can't…actually see through the viewfinder,…or use any of the auto focus controls.…However, you can continue to use the live view display,…which you'll learn more about later.…To change release modes,…press the Release Mode Dial Lock,…and then turn it into Mirror Up Mode.…
Now, frame the picture using the View Finder.…When you are ready, push the Shutter Button halfway…halfway to focus and meter the scene,…just like you would normally expose a photo.…Then, when you press the Shutter Button all the way down,…it's going to raise the mirror.…Note, it's important that you haven't actually taken…the photo, so you're going to press this button…when you're ready to raise the mirror.…
