Live View: Its Benefits and Shortcomings – Free Quick Guide

Though the current generation of vloggers, bloggers, influencers, and photography enthusiasts probably couldn’t imagine a life without Live View, it wasn’t long ago when it was little more than a pipedream.

In this eBook, Photzy Author Robin Nichols looks at the humble viewfinder’s current and past developments, including its most recent cousin – Live View.

Before Live View became mainstream, the only framing option was to peer through an eyepiece to see what our cameras were capturing.

The photographic market is demanding ever smaller and lighter cameras. The traditional optical viewfinder could be heading toward extinction.
That may not be a good outcome, as we will discuss in this guide.

What You’ll Learn Today:

  • A short history of the camera viewfinder, ‘live’ and otherwise
  • Advantages of the optical viewfinder
  • Live View on a DSLR
  • Live View on mirrorless cameras
  • Advantages and disadvantages of Live View
  • Tips for getting the best performance from the Live View feature on your camera
