When you shoot a video, the mirror goes up and stays up, right?
Sure, for (fast) AF the system might work better with the mirror down but I'm talking about fixed focus.
Why does the mirror need to be down for the shutter to be cocked?
AFAIK, the front and rear shutters just move across the plane, so what's stopping this process from repeating whist the mirror is locked up?
Someone has filmed (probably with an iphone, what else?) at the exhibition/photo fair to show what you see when "you look through the optical viewfinder" of the D500 by putting the iphone's lens up to the eyepiece and shooting the D500 at 10 frames a second. (it could be 12 Fps.)
....and it isn't live view either!
Nikon have just announced the Nikon the D5 accessory pack which will now include a rubber-band for attaching your iphone when filming 4K for longer than three minutes..... :lol: :ph34r:
