D300 Mirror Up question

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR' started by taurus, Jul 23, 2008.

  1. I frequently use the Mirror Up function. At those times when I need to raise the tripod too high for comfortable viewing, the Nikon Manual suggests using Live View. Will the mirror up movement in Live View provide the same vibration reduction as using MU? I searched the forum posts for this but had no luck. Thanks
     
  2. The Answer

    After no one responded I emailed Nikon

    Based on their response, apparently the answer is no it is not the same as MU. Nikon, suggested using use exposure delay mode (CSM d9) with the D300 in live view to avoid camera shake caused by mirror movement. This is explained on page 285 of the manual
