shoot with the mirror locked?
I'm pretty sure no.
I read in my Magic Lantern book that the menu item for lock up was not for picture taking. I was hoping there was another feature somewhere that I missed that allowed for shooting with the mirror locked.
Brad (NYC) is right, the mirror lock up is purely for cleaning the sensor. You'll need a higher end body like the D300 if you want a proper mirror lock.
I've never found mirror vibration to be a major issue in what I do however, the only time I ever experienced it severely was when I had a modified x2 TC attached to my 300/4.
This got me thinking , if you had to shoot in dark conditions with flash as your main light you could set flash to rear-curtain and exposure to 1/2 second . The flash would fire 1/2 second after the mirror locks up ..... But then with the speed of flash you wouldn't be needing mirror-lock up:tongue:
