how do I get my 620 to act like a P+S:eek:

by which I mean...when in live view I don't want the mirror slapping up and down when I focus or take the shot...ie the mirror stays locked up and doesn't flap up and down..until I turn LV off...

TIA

it's not in the manual as it's not possible (the shoot bit) - AF with CDAF lenses should operate in Imager LV mode without mirror flap.

not possible without a new shutter mechanism completely - the current one has the mirror cycle linked to the shutter ie it's not a small change!
