    So I was looking at this in the E-P1, and my understanding is that back in the E series days with the prism, this was design to give time for vibrations to settle when the mirror moved out of the lightpath. What exactly does it do for the E-P1? Could I use this as a self timer, because 12s on the self timer is not long enough sometimes.

    DJ, this has been a mystery fo many shooters I think even our own Brian is stumped.
    Maybe he has an answer as it's been a while since this was mentioned.

    You can just combine it with the self-timer to make a custom self-timer interval, say a 14 second delay or a 3 second one. All it does is delay the shutter release. Perhaps useful if you want to recompose after pressing the shutter release, because you're in an awkward stance.
