Using Mirror Lock-Up on Nikon

Unread post by nix155 » 14.03.2018 08:32

Hello, How does the Nikon camera delay function work? From the description it is unclear, it is said only that it works correctly. The function of MUP, as I understood it is not used.

Sincerely,
Andrey.

I'm not sure what you're asking about. What delay function?
Mirror lock-up is not supported with Nikon cameras. Make sure it's OFF in the camera body or Helicon Remote will not be able to function at all.

I did not understand either. Here's your documentation:
(http://www.heliconsoft.com/HeliconRemot ... tml#HR_MLU)

Using Mirror Lock-Up (MLU)
Helicon Remote detects MLU mode for Canon cameras (see status bar) and behaves accordingly. Nikon cameras have two different settings: Mirror Lock Up (Mup) shooting mode and Exposure delay. Exposure delay is not indicated by Helicon Remote but it functions properly. Mup mode has no effect on Helicon Remote, it will function as if the regular Single shooting mode is set.

In order to use MLU with a Canon camera, simply find and activate the MLU mode (or mirror pre-fire) in your camera settings. In Helicon Remote's preferences you can set the delay for MLU mode: File → Preferences → Shooting → Canon → Delay for MLU mode. This delay allows the camera to become still after raising the mirror. The less the camera vibrates, the sharper the image will be.

Helicon Remote should detect when you activate MLU in your camera settings. You can check for MLU activation on the left side of the status bar, which is along the bottom of the program window. (It will read "MLU: on" or "MLU: off.")

Once again: decipher, please quote from your own documentation: "Nikon cameras have two different settings: Mirror Lock Up (Mup) shooting mode and Exposure delay. Exposure delay is not indicated by Helicon Remote but it functions properly."
What do you mean by "Exposure delay is not indicated by Helicon Remote but it functions properly" and how it works.

That is a feature of some Nikon cameras, I can't say which ones. Consult your camera's user manual if you're interested in this.
