Mirror lock Up function for Nikon D7000

Can a mirror lockup feature be introduced for the Nikon D7000? It requires two depressions of the shutter release with a delay inbetween. The first press locks the mirror up and the second fires the shutter. The delay would be needed to allow vibrations from the shutter locking to settle.

thanks

We have not seen the possibility to activate MLU for Nikon remotely. Do you know any program which can do this?

Zerene Stacker can achieve mirror lock-up remotely. It appears just to be an option to fire the shutter and specify a delay before firing the shutter again. The physical mirror lock-up is set on the camera before running the stack sequence.

Yes, it should be easy to implement a mirror lock up option for Nikon. The user sets the camera to the mirror lock up shooting mode, then would select an option in Helicon Remote that would set the program to trigger the shutter twice for each shot (with some nominal delay between the triggers). should be simple - please consider adding it as I too shoot Nikon in mirror lock up quite often.

We'll see into it when we're done with more pressing tasks.

Is there any status on this? Nikon sets the Mirror Up function on the Release Mode dial, not through the menu system. So, I would hit the shutter button or release button once to flip the mirror up, wait a second or three to let vibrations stop then hit the release again to actually fire the shutter. I believe most other Nikons with a release mode dial can do this as well. (This isn't like the D80's version where this is set in menus. This is actually a dial.)

So, from a remote program to fire the shutter it would take 2 different shutter fire sequences. One to open the mirror, the next to open the shutter. Shooting stacks, panos or even HDR's with the Android remote and mirror up functionality would be greatly welcomed! :)

Hi Mike,

It's still on our to-do list, but we didn't get to it yet.
