This question already has an answer here:
I am new to photography and trying to learn everyday. I've noticed when shooting in manual mode and using the Viewfinder like most professionals use, when I press the shutter button down you have to like click it twice in order for it to take the photo. I've watched Youtube videos of pros shooting and they shoot in manual and it snaps the picture quick!
When I press it down it's like something inside the camera closes, and then when I press again it captures the image and the view finder opens back up. I want it to just snap the photo when I press it. I tried turning off the shutter button focus and using the back AF button and it still happens.
Is there a setting I need to change? This is why I liked using the Live View Screen to shoot, because it snaps it right when i want it to. There isn't this, like, double tap on the shutter button.
