I swear I have tried to find a definitive answer to this question before deciding to begin a new thread. My search was not succesful, so here I am with what may be another newbie question for you guys...
I just bought a tripod in order to try to get sharper pictures and use smaller apertures for greater depth of filed. I also intend to try low light photography. My OM 2000 has a self timer that lifts up the mirror a few seconds before the shutter is released. My question is: if I use a cable release instead of the self timer, would I get more camera shake? Or perhaps the difference is not significant? I won't be using lenses longer than 200 mm at first.
I ask that because using the self timer would imply longer intervals between shots. A cable release would make things faster.
