discovered how I'll shoot my T7i - in LV

OMG -LV is incredible

I've got mine set-up as follows

enter LV - then go into menu

go to #5 on menu camera tab and select --Live 1 point AF

also enable Touch shutter under #5

I have my focus set to back * button- under custom functions

I set my iso to initially auto

In Manual mode when shooting in LV you have touch screen control to change the settings rapidly as you watch the screen for exposure

iso, ss, AV and exposure comp are all right there while you see the frame

wow - with my 35 f2 IS this focused in candlelight - I couldn't even see the target clearly so I used the magnify button to zoom in to see the focus clearly

and on other rule of third targets I touched the screen on the target to focus and shoot at the same time.

This will be my favorite way to shoot this camera - I have 2 batteries and will buy a few more since my T7i will now be in Live View most of the time
