I wanted to highlight Marc Lacoste’s great idea for shooting in corners for those of you that don’t frequent the flickr discussions.

  • Why wouldn’t a pair of video glasses work as well or better? (small, light weight, portable, etc) There are plenty around these days mostly marketed to the “gaming” crowd. I’m thinking about buying a pair to help better compose shots taken from my pole. I do Pole Aerial Photography (PAP). I need something to use in bright sunlight.

  • I’m a bit confused here. Looks like you’re using a Nikon so are you saying you can get ‘live view’ from the viewfinder on the monitor? I thought you could only show pictures form the memory card on a video monitor?

  • MVUS, it’s not “live view” as such, but it’s an instant preview just after the photo was taken, same as pushing your preview button to view the photo on your LCD.

  • If you want Live View, you are limited to the Oly e-300, e-410, e-510 and that new $4k Canon.

  • Or every consumer digicam. (and the panasonic/leica olympus based DSLR)

  • I’m not attracted towards video glasses.
    1. There is a wire. I often go out of the room, and at least I go out of the lens FOV. Difficult if I’m tied to the camera.
    2. I care of how I look, I need to show a good apparence to customers. Video glasses are incompatible with that.

  • Imagine how embarrassing it would be to forget about the cord, walk away, and yank over your expensive equipment.

    Forgot to mention the consumer digicams. I was shocked to find the DSLRs didn’t do liveview, and this was just last year.

    My first good camera was a new Nikon FTn so it’s not like I was a complete novice either.

  • Whoops, that’s my anonymous post.
