That's it. This kind of stuff is like the designated hitter in baseball, keeping us old farts shooting long after we should have hung-em up. I apologize to those whose cameras do not have live view capability, but, for you, I have another quick tip. Carry a pocket flashlight to illuminate the scene while focusing.
THERE, now if everyone is happy I have deadlines to meet.
I'm a huge fan of live view. After trading up to a Canon 1D MkIIn from my 40D, I missed it so much that I sold the 1D and bought another 40D. As I get older I couldn't imagine a camera without it. For macro/close-up work it's indispensable.ReplyDelete
