Michael Friedberg Wrote:Mechanical chronos are very nice for telling elapsed timne, but keep in mind that there are two steps in recording precisely elapsed time before the chrono hand starts running:1) human reaction time in seeing the start and "telling" fingers to depress the pusher2) human reaction time in having the muscles work to depress the pusherUnfortunately, for those who are exacting these two factors vary both from instance to instance and person to person. Electronic triggers are far more exact and consistent.As such, I wouldn't worry about a fraction of a second jump at the beginning of any mechanical chronograph interval. It is relatively meaningless.
