Re: Slamming Mirror Never Existed

To call the mirror movement in DSLR's "slamming" is a very false exaggeration of what is happening clearly intended to create false images of a system that has worked very well for a long time and is still the preferred system by most users. I'm not saying mirror less won't eventually replace it, but not with the technology out there right now for most users.

I'm not knocking the preference of many here for the SLT system and the advantages it does offer. I'm just criticizing the dishonesty of the "slamming mirror" terminology.

You may have never owned an KM 5D/7D  "Slamming" is an accurate term

In terms it needs to "slam" so that it comes to a hard stop.. vs something padded that flexes as it needs to handle 5=6 FPS on some systems and can't "settle in"

I do have to say as much as the A700 was an improvement over my KM5D, I love how quite the shutter only sound of the A77 is.
