Re: D800 Live View Problem?

The d800 Live View implementation is probably the biggest failing of the camera.  In low light, it is so noisy as to be of little utility when focusing.

Using a larger screen such as a CamRanger / iPad helps considerably.   This also allows you to perform a focus bracket using very fine lens movements.  The viewfinder is also perfectly cromulent.

I'll bet the D800s fixes that issue - it's a big sticking point for an otherwise incredible camera.
