E-1 mirror. Can it be locked up?

I'm going to contact Olympus, but thought I'd throw this one out here first.
Is there anyway of locking the mirror in the up position?

I'm operating the camera through Olympus Studio and would cut down of wear and tear considerably if the mirror could be locked up. (i think this was a standard feature on film SLRs)

There's nothing obvious, but there maybe a clever key combination or something?

Wishful thinking perhaps...

Thanks,

Sam

As far as I know you can't. But you can use the delay - the mirror moves up and you can set a delay time up to 30 secs before the shutter fires. It's called anti-shock.

I'll second that, no mirror lock just the anti shock delay

Doesn't the mirror lock up in 'cleaning mode'?

It does, but the shutter is open too and sensor is off.
