Accuracy of Depth of Field on Nikon D5100 LCD??
Apr 13, 2012

Does anyone have experience with how accurate the "depth of field" is on the Nikon D5100 Live View vs. Optical View Finder? I know this camera model doesn't have a depth of field preview button, but I thought if the DOF on the Live View is accurate, that might be enough for me.

Essentially, what I'm looking to find out, is will the Live View give me an accurate representation of the depth of field?

It seems that the Optical view finder is not great and seems to be "stuck" at f/4 or f/5.6 based on this post:
