I just tried it with my 500D, and it works. The mirror is spring-loaded, like your Nikon.Thanks for checking that, Kevin!

Thanks for checking that, Kevin! I appreciate the help!

Just for reference, did it let you take shots with the mirror pushed up? (Or were you just commenting that the mirror "could" be pushed up?)

you should try it with the older cameras, as pointed out, the life view is not what you are looking for, you don't want the sensor continuously active.

Perhaps in the worst case it's possible to remove the mirror.
