Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Live view, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- Shooting with Live View lets you see…a preview of the image on the back LCD panel.…Live View is useful if you need to…step out from behind the camera…and interact with your subject.…It can also be more comfortable…if you're shooting using a short tripod,…or the camera's being held overhead…or low to the ground.…Keep in mind, though, there are a few drawbacks.…The biggest is that Live View…will quickly eat up your batteries.…Running the LCD panel uses a lot of power.…So if you know you're going to be…heading into a situation that requires…a lot of Live View shooting,…or, for example, you plan on shooting a lot of video,…which also uses Live View,…consider investing in some extra batteries.…
Live View can also be distracting to others…if you're shooting in a dark environment,…such as a concert.…Keep in mind, you can also see things on the LCD panel…that the camera's file structure can't successfully capture.…So don't count on the dynamic range being an exact match.…Realize that you might see some things…on the LCD panel that are not accurate…
