I found out today if you select mirror lockup and hit the shutter release,then after the mirror goes up and the shutter opens,just drop the battery out and it stays up....this was found because i`m too cheap to buy the AC adapter,and also because i wanted a safe way to make sure the shutter didn`t close during cleaning..this will cause "error" on your LCD top panel...but hitting the shutter again with the battery put back in returns everything to normal..i left the power switch on the whole time doing this....

I just tried this again for over 1/2 hour and it does stay open with no problems and the error is easily reset by hitting the shutter button...
