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.

I deeply resent your personal attack on the honesty of myself and other posters that have mentioned it in this thread. The affect of mirror vibration vs. electronic first curtain has been clearly demonstrated on this forum (by Nordstjernen) and elsewhere. Removal of that vibration (which is one of the many advancements provided by SLT and mirrorless), however small it may be in specific instances, is a clearly demonstrable improvement; not "false," not an "exaggeration," and certainly not "dishonest" to point it out.
