Thanks again Marianne

Thats a pretty clever idea to monitor the mirror movement. The 6ms delay in manual mode is interesting. When you measured that was the exposure mode in manual also?

I use FV lock quite often as I do find kids escpecially to be fast enough to be just starting to close their eyes when the shutter opens after the preflashes. With these traces you can see exacly how fast those kids have to be. This is one of the most interesting threads I have read here in a long time.

BTW, not sure which HP calculator that is but it looks similar to mine, a 32S II RPN.

I hope you have a "Happy New Year" and keep up the good work.
