To further reduce the possibility of camera shake, use a shutter release cable or set the self-timer to two seconds. In self-timer mode, the mirror will lift when you press the shutter release button but the camera will fire automatically after two seconds, so you don't have to touch the camera again. Also remember that the Mirror Lockup feature will remain active (even after turning the camera on and off) until you disable it in the menu.
