I'd like to have an SLT-mirror that flips up during the shot

You stated that the SLT mirror adds noise and is reducing details. Both points are unproven and you are not able to back it up by physics ("The mirror changes light physics" is no prove but utter nonsense).

It's your turn to prove it.

The experiment you posted has a lot of design flaws and uncontrolled circumstances. That renders the experiment useless when it comes to proving anything.

I guess you never did any serious tests under controlled circumstances. If someone finds a major design flaw it's your turn to fix the experiment. You can either make a new improved test or prove that the design flaw is no problem because you can rule out or identifiy any problems/effects.

I just explained it above, but here you go again. Blocking light underexposes your shots. To get the same exposure as an SLT without the mirror (or same as any other apsc), iso gain will be higher per any iso stop. I don't understand how so many SMART people could not understand this. If you are blocking 30% of the light, yet your shot has more noise and is the same exposure, all sony does is up the gain per iso stop.

As for the idea of a design flaw, its not a flaw in sony's eyes, it's a tradeoff. They know you end up with slightly more noise, they have to compensate with gain when calibrating. People here are just becoming hip to this and letting you know, which I would say isn't working. I did this test over a year ago, maybe I should do it again.
