Quick Mirror Lock-up Tip for Canon 50D

A quick tip on how to minimize camera shake during long exposures. The Canon 50D mirror lock-up function is buried somewhere in the menus. When you want to flip your mirror quickly just do this: use the Live View mode! Live View has also the advantage that you can see the image on your LCD screen. And of course you are using a cable release or the self-timer.

The only downside is that your battery will run down faster because Live View uses more current.
