Mirror up on D80
Apr 3, 2007

I've just received my D80 as a second body to the D200.

I've ordered a remote release for tripod work, can I take it that when using the remote the mirror goes up on the first push of the remote control button and you take the picture with a second push? (like most modern cameras)

I am a bit surprised that there doesn't seem to be a mirror up button or a menu function for it that lifts the mirror on the first touch.

I must say that the mirror seems to be very well damped but even so surely there is a mirror up function somewhere?

I do realise that the mirror lock in the menu is for sensor cleaning BTW.

Thanks for your replies
