LiveView

Ok, I concede, I think I have found some of the benefit of the LiveView mode I now have available to me. I went to Salhouse Broad this evening to try to get some shots of the bluebells, and also to try some panoramas (haven't downloaded the photos yet though). With the bluebells, I had my tripod very low, with me sitting on the floor (yet again). I put the camera into LiveView and it did make seeing the scene a little easier than craning my neck.

The biggest advantage though, was something I picked up on from one of Bruce's posts, about using the exposure simulation mode. I was using a variety of ND grad filters, and by sliding them down varying amounts, the LiveView tries to alters the exposure of the picture on the LCD to show the exposure you will get on the photo. Instead of just getting darker as you put the filter in (as through the view finder), it alters the image on the screen so the area covered by the filter is correct in relationship to the unfiltered area.

Finally I tried a couple of panoramas from the top of the hill overlooking the broad. In LiveView, it is much easier to see how far you have rotated the camera between each shot, and means you can leave the tripod undisturbed by not constantly knocking the camera with your nose.

Hoorah for LiveView :naughty:
