Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Activating Live view, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
As we've seen one of the great advantages of an SLR is that you have a…viewfinder that looks through the same lens that exposes the sensor.…However, there are times when looking through that viewfinder is actually kind of a hassle.…Maybe the camera is on a tripod, in a difficult to see position, or perhaps…you're shooting a portrait and you prefer to look directly into your subject's…eyes rather than hiding behind the camera.…For those situations Live View might be a preferable way to work.…In Live View, the camera's LCD screen becomes a viewfinder just like on a…point and shoot camera.…
The camera takes the image that's being captured by its sensor, then it puts…it immediately up on the screen so that you can see what the camera is…actually capturing.…One advantage of Live View is that you see absolutely 100% of the area captured…by your camera as opposed to the roughly 96% of the scene that you get when you…look through the normal viewfinder.…To activate Live View, you just press the Live View button which is right here.…
