Title: 5d3 Timelapse. Should i lock up the mirror?
Post by: Kankalin on March 14, 2013, 08:38:06 AM
Hi

I'm about to make a timelapse movie (dawn, dusk and stary night) next week, using a 5d mkIII. But im considered about the helth of the machine, dont want to waste mirror count.

So i was thinking about using mirror lock up function to save the mirror mechanism.
Does it worth it? Should i be considered about the sensor (continous lights) instead? Is there any  dangers, disadvantages?

So im looking for someones experience in this field.

Thanks

You still need to let the mirror come down in order to take a second exposure.  Mirror lockup is just for one image.
