What does it mean?

This is what it means to me.

1. there is a anti-live view bias (or people don't want to admit to using live view because they think it's amateurish).

2. live view is only needed (and only used by most people) in certain circumstances, but that doesn't mean most people don't want their cameras to have the capability.

It's somewhat like HD movies imo. I want it on my next camera, but how often I'll use it, I don't know. I do know that when doing Macro and landscape I use live view a ton. Especially for Macro with the E330. Amazing live view system. It really depends on the subject and type of shooting I'm doing. I suspect that when shooting movies I'll use the HD movie mode a ton.

Cheers,
Seth

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
