Mirror cling clang when play, or enter the menu from live view

So,


Most of this is here already.


I would copy my firts post from thread._ PENTAX CLING CLANG THING :

________________________________________________________________________________-


I want to know, why on Earth, is every time in LIVE VIEW MODE, and when I press MENU, INFO or PLAY button, - from camera I hear - CLING CLANG sound, of mirror closing and opening floating upside-down ?
--
It's so annoying.

When you work from Live View, and want to review your shoots, or enter the menu, cling clang, cling clang, cling clang !



wHERE was the brain in this genius idea, that the mirror must be closed down, just to enter the menu from your LCD ?
Or in Play mode ?

Why mirror in this cases could not just stay in up position instead of doing this nasty cling clang thing every time ? I want to know is there some special reason for that behaviour, and is it must be in that way, or is it unknown ..?

I cannot recall myself to any valuable reason, why mirror in Playback, and Info, or Menu mode must be in down position...

The answer is the same as in your previous post...battery and component life. Why use power to keep the mirror up when you can save power by releasing it? Why keep the solenoid energised when you can improve its service life by switching it off. Why expose the sensor to light and dust when you can reduce damage by covering it?


Just because you don't understand the reasons, doesn't mean they don't make sense.

The problem is that it takes energy to keep the shutter open and the sensor active. (On the K-3 family, as far as I can tell, keeping the mirror up alone does not require extra energy.) As such, the camera simply closes the shutter and lowers the mirror when in the menus. This behavior is by design, but at least the K-3 would automatically resume live view when you exit the menu. (The K-5 did not and you had to press the live view button again to do the same.)
