Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing images using Live View, part of Performance Tuning Your Canon Digital SLR.
- Let's take a closer look at image review…and make sure we know how to check for sharpness…and a correct histogram.…We've got the 5D Mark III mounted on the tripod,…I'm in live view, we've got our still life cameras,…I've got my box here, ready for focus.…I hold down the asterisk, back button focus.…I've got my beep and my green box,…I know I've got it.…I'm going to take a shot.…Now, the image comes up on the back of the screen.…Because I've set image review to hold,…it's not going anywhere.…
