| p.1 #1 · 5d3-mirror lock up operation? |
A couple evenings ago, I was at Kezar Lake, and decided to try an extended exposure shot. I had the camera on the tripod, and had the 16-35 canon lens. It appeared that I had packed my remote trigger release somewhere in my backpack, in a place that would render it unfindable. That was when I realized, I hadn't memorized where the timer release option was. Yes, this is a bit different than my old EOS film camera.
I did set the mirror lock-up and was shooting a manual exposure setting of about f-16 and 20 seconds (+/-, as I didn't memorize it.). When I released the shutter, I heard what sounded like the mirror lock up, but then there was no image recorded. I decided that trying to figure this out in the dark was going to just bring frustration.
Yesterday, I trie it in the kitchen, with a more normal exposure, and the same thing happened. If I release the shutter again, it shoots the image. So, what is that all about? With my old camera, it happens in one release of the shutter. The mirror moves up, locks, takes the photo, then releases. Do I have something set that I don't know about?, Like one of those hundreds of settings?
So, there is one for the stupid question books.
I appreciate the help though, regardless.
