2-Stage Shutter Release

Commonly employed on digital cameras, 2-stage shutter release is a shutter release, that when pressed halfway, it activates the autofocus and the light meter of the camera, setting them to achieve correct focus and exposure. Holding the release at mid-course maintains the focusing point and allows for re-composition if desired. A further press on the shutter release takes the picture.
