- It's time to discuss Live View,…which is one of my absolute favorite features…of Canon cameras.…Starting with the Mark II, Canon really elevated…how Live View is used in everyday photography.…For myself and the way that I shoot,…I use the viewfinder for composing,…and I use Live View to actually shoot,…especially because I'm oftentimes on a tripod.…Now, for these three models,…there's a slight difference in setting up the Live View…so I'll describe that in a second.…The 5DS we're going to start with in the Menu.…You may notice occasionally I'm looking at a monitor…not the back of my camera on the menu…and that's because in order to give you the menu feed,…I have an HDMI out going to a monitor.…
So sometimes it looks a little bit odd.…We're going to go right into the Menu…and, again, we're in Shoot1, the very first menu,…and we come over to Shoot5, which is Live View function.…Live View shoot is already set to Enable, that's fantastic.…Auto Focus method, this is what you need…to really make sure the setting is what you need.…
