    :D But I always get such good responses here! Google is like my left-hand now. Asking photography questions right here on the forum just seems natural.

    Alright, I'll do it the hard way...punk. :er:

    I think is is generally expected that you would first research those terms yourself ... then ask us for clarification by stating what specific things are not understood.

    ie "I googled Mirror-Lock-Up but do not really understand the part about ..."

    We do get tired of posters that do not even bother attempted to find their own answer first.

    @#$%, I hate when new Posters revive the dead.
