Upcoming Sony SLTs May Feature Pellicle Mirror Flip-Up Mode
Most SLR cameras feature a mirror lock-up mode that allows photographers to eliminate the vibration (and blur) caused by the mirror flapping up and down whenever a shot is snapped. Sony's SLT cameras don't offer this when it comes to the pellicle mirror found inside -- not yet, at least.
A Sony patent filed back in 2009 and published earlier this week shows that the company has been tinkering with the feature. sonyalpharumors is also hearing from a source that it's something the next generation of Sony SLT cameras will offer.
