It’s important to know >> the shutter button has 2 (two, zwei, due) pressed states:
- Half-pressed >> your camera wakes up from sleep mode, initiates exposure metering and tries to focus your shot (read more about whether that actually happens in this article)
- Fully pressed >> the camera takes a photo based on the above settings/metering
