reviewed camera controls

Reviewed some Canon camera settings. Mirror lock up in particular. Tested controlling the lock up with the intervalometer—it worked! Just need to build that into the exposure (or LONG on the Neewer) time. For example, LONG equals required exposure time plus the camera self-timer value, be it 2 seconds or 10 seconds. The intervalometer triggers the camera, the self-timer starts, the mirror goes up, the self-timer period ends, then the shutter opens. I also reviewed the custom settings, C1, C2, etc. Reprogrammed C1, in fact, for bulb, as it was 0.4 seconds and kept resetting to that. Finally, I put an extra lanyard on it!


Made infographics to help me remember.
