I could not have got this shot at all without liveview on my E-510.

Why not? I mean assuming you have an accurate focusing camera...

Because the cat was sitting on my chest as I explained to Green. I was lying down in bed. Lizzie's face was less than a foot from my own. I was holding the camera over my right shoulder top, using it one handed with liveview and the appallingly bad focusing f2/50 (according to some, at least ... I find it focuses exceptionally well, and fast, in almost all circumstances ... on all 3 of my bodies ... ).

E-510, f2/50 macro, ISO 800, f2 @ 1/45th, OoC JPEG with minimal PP by automated PS action ...

EXIF data in image, as usual ...

Sorry, I forgot that the E-510 "can't do ISO 800". Someone should have told me ... ;). NF in camera was set to off. No NR in PP.

Never forget that only dead fish swim with the stream.

Lots of fish swim with the stream. Otherwise the headwaters would be chock full of fish, and there would be none anywhere else ...

So Malcolm Muggeridge is patently and obviously wrong ...
