    Great informative answers folks and yes it only makes sense to get a second 120 insert with the plastic box/holder rather than fumbling around on the street unloading and then loading film while the daylight is moving.

    Hi Folks another question on the 645e and I'll post it in this thread.

    Mirror lock up question.

    In the instruction manual for the 645E on page 20 it says "Note: Only AEL in the mirror Lock-up mode is possible."

    What about mirror lock up in manual photography mode? That wording is confusing to me. Can anyone clue me in?

    If I want to do long exposures at night on a tripod and avoid any mirror shake, I should be able to lock up the mirror after composing the shot in manual...correct?

    Thanks

    Benny:

    Not surprisingly, once you lock up the mirror, the meter can no longer read the light.

    So the reference in the manual is to the fact that if you intend to depend on the meter to set exposure automatically for you, you need to use the AEL function.

    Manual metering won't be affected - you will just need to take your meter readings and set your settings before you lock up the mirror.

    Have fun!

    Thanks Matt,

    That clears that up for manual..... and I guess if I did want to set exposure automatically at any time with mirror lock up (I would use AEL mode), then I would press the shutter half way..... the meter would take the reading..... it would then lock for ten seconds ..... and then I lock up the mirror and release the shutter.
