release
As for single-frame except that noise is reduced by 
disabling beeps and minimizing sound produced when 
mirror drops back into place. Beep does not sound when 
camera focuses regardless of setting selected for Custom 
Setting d1 (Beep
0 306) and mirror does not drop back 
into place until shutter-release button is returned to 
halfway position after shooting, allowing you to delay 
noise made by mirror. Mirror is quieter than in single-frame 
mode.

Self-timer
Use self-timer for self-portraits or to reduce blurring caused 
by camera shake (
0 106).
M
UP
Mirror up
Choose this mode to minimize camera shake in telephoto 
or close-up photography or in other situations in which the 
slightest camera movement can result in blurred 
photographs (
0 108).
* Average frame rate with continuous-servo AF, manual or shutter-priority 
auto exposure, a shutter speed of 
1
/
250
