  1. I remember well your early digital waterfall shots from our Jasc forum days. Your work then (as now) was a major influence on my improving my abilities.

    Curious – What does mirror-lock up do in the above sequence?

  2. Mirror lock up is used to diminish the effects of vibration induced by the mirror moving out of the way to expose the sensor. Firing the shutter creates a 1/15th second of shake. When camera is tripod mounted and exposures are between 1/15th and 1 second the shake is significant enough to affect image quality. MLU allows me to swing the mirror out of the way, let the vibration settle and then fire the shutter.
