Found in the archives a post from June of 2014 where Primeclash asked about a mirror up option. Probably was after something similar to what can be done with "DSLR Shutter".
That is the ability to flip the mirror up, "x" seconds before beginning a BULB exposure.
With my D7000:
Mode dial set to "M" (manual)
Release Mode dial set to "Mup" (mirror up)
Exposure set to "BULB"
Utilizing a DSUSB connectiity, with "DSLR Shutter" I can configure an exposure (or sequence of exposures) to flip the mirror up, "n" seconds before beginning my BULB exposure.
Very nice for eliminating mirror-slap vibration before you expose.
Of course, DSLR Shutter doesn't have the features of a BYN, but the pre-exposure mirror-up feature is very nice.
I know Guy mentions that it wouldn't be there for v1, but in a posting on the Beta 02f release Guy mentions "Mirror-lock using SEROAL CABLE only. I was not able to make it work over USB cable".
So if I understand correctly, with a 2 USB cable setup for my D7000 (USB to camera mini-B USB port, DSUSB to camera accessory terminal) mirror up or mirror-lock is NOT available yet in BackYardNIKON, correct? And if not, what are the plans to put it in at some time?
Thanks in advance ... Bill
