I think it is a problem of getting used to.. with EVF you don't know where the subject actually is, and with OVF you don't know where the subject is going to be. What I am trying to say is you basically use the same anticipatory skills, either with EVF or with OVF, you shoot before the moment you want to capture.

Not really. With the OVF you always know where the subject is (within the limits of the speed of light) as long as it is visible in the frame. With an EVF you only know where the subject was.

Anticipation for shutter lag is the same for both.

I think we are talking about the same thing. LOL




We press the shutter at 1 anticipating the subject is going to be at 2. For practical purposes it doesn't really matter if the subject IS where we see it, or WAS where we see it. We all press the shutter at the same time and capture the subject at the same position (assuming the total lag is the same).

X = Where the subject actually is.


SL = Shutter LAG

ML = Mirror LAG

[C] = Capture
