Hello, this is Maurice and I welcome you Tech Photo Blog. This is episode #2.
This episode measures the lag introduced by the Camera Axe. Then I measure the actual shutter lag on a Canon 30D using two different methods. The first involves using a front curtain flash and the second records a video of the shutter opening. The reasons for the long shutter delay of 69 ms is broken down into the different stages of: closing lens aperture, mirror flip up, mirror debounce, and actually opening the shutter.
Here’s a site the lists the different shutter lags for lots of different cameras.
The idea from this episode came from Paul’s thread on the Camera Axe forums
