Release Modes in Detail

The D700 has several Release modes, which decide how many images can be taken, and how fast. In Figure 3-10, we see the Release Mode dial with its Lock release button (press the lock button, turn the dial).

Here is a look at each Release mode in more detail:

  • S – Single Frame

  • CL – Continuous low speed

  • CH – Continuous high speed

  • LV – Live View

  • Self-timer

  • MUP – Mirror Up

In the good-old-film days, some of the Release modes would have been called “Motor-Drive” settings, since those modes are concerned with how fast the camera is allowed to take pictures.

We’ve already talked about these modes to some degree in the consideration of the AF-area modes.
