EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Do that many people use Live View for pics primarily over normal Viewfinder?« on: November 20, 2012, 05:51:52 PM »
I use live view mostly for landscapes and maybe previewing some shots I'd like to make. There are some cases where it is very difficult to meter. You would have to go for spot metering and then averaging it manually through your head. An easier way to do this is to go for live view. It may not be as accurate but at least you have the general idea of how your shot would turn out. But saying this, I'd do it mostly for still objects. For moving objects, I'd rely on my viewfinder more and EV adjustments to get the metering right. This is just from my experience with 500D. I don't know if it will be easier when using higher end bodies since I know they have better metering capability than 500D.
