theres lots of space because its a desert! thats what i was trying to get across. i have hundreds of different pyramid photos, but this is sadly one of the more successful captures.
If it's APS with an 85mm lens shooting something close to the camera then I'm not surprised there's no camera shake without MLU
What shutter speeds did you use? A lot of people think the benefit is with 'long' exposures, but not really. Fast and slow shutter speeds really don't benefit from MLU, whereas between around 1/20 and 0.5 s you should see a benefit.
MLU + EFC is even better. See: http://krebsmicro.com/Canon_EFSC/index.html for examples.
ok thats amazing!
so if i got this right, just switch into live view mode?
i did a quick test, same scenario and the difference is amazing, very noticeable ! 1.normal remote shutter 2.remote shutter +live view
the live view version is miles cleaner at 100% crop.
again i tired the same shot one with mirror up ,then one down, no difference!
I guess all the pros know about this, but for me this is a revelation ! only problem is the drain on batter from live view!
I found that the tripod weight was more important than mirror lockup. I have a pair of tripods.... the old heavy one moves a lot less than the new lightweight one.... but hang a weight off of the lightweight tripod and it gets very steady. I have a eyelet in the bottom of the central collumn that I attach to the camera bag with a length of light rope.... makes the setup much more stable.
