Request: mirror up without focal plane shutter

Postby Kristofer3 » Mon Apr 18, 2016 8:41 pm

When i had my old H2 with the P65+ and and activated mirror up it opened everything except the leaf shutter. Making it almost dead quiet during exposures, also very little vibration.
When i choose mirror up on my XF it still runs the focal plane shutter making it sound about the same as with mirror down. I've been told it has something to do with it needing a black calibration, but i would love an option where i could dissable this for special shoots where i want it stealth quiet. As long as i'm aware of that i'm bypassing the black calibration and accept whatever difference it would be ok i guess. Don't see the difference from exposuring from live view, it's not using the focal plane shutter then and that seems ok ...
