Re: Live View

I used it just yesterday. Getting flower shots in sharp focus with reasonable depth of field really requires a sturdy tripod. So, I was flat on the ground with the tripod's center column reversed and the D700 hanging upside down with access to the viewfinder about 4" from the ground and impaired by the tripod legs, I turned on Live View, zoomed in on the part of the flower I wanted to be in very sharp focus and adjusted my MF macro lens. I pressed the shutter release again and the shot was taken.

It's like a lot of other tools: you may not use it very often, but when you need it, it's invaluable.
