Natural Live View
2

If you guys shoot raw only, do you always shoot with Natural Live View switched on?  You probably do unless you are using one of the other methods we have talked so much about for getting the histo to better match what the raw histo would be if there was one (which there is not).

I do because Fuji says it gives you a more raw-like histo which is something we have all talked about many times on this forum. (We can use in-camera jpeg settings that provide a histo that is more like the actual raw file but that results in dull, flat or weird colored EVF that is not pleasant to see).

Anyway, Fuji says shooting with Live View On better mimics the raw histo but turns off in-camera jpeg effects. It is a less pleasant screen on the LCD or in the EVF, but they say gives a better histo for raw shooting and ETTR.

Do most of you raw-shooters shoot with Live View On in your general day-to-day shooting? I checked and played with it yesterday and flipped back and forth and the histo is for sure effected, which is of course good. If that histo is closer to true raw then we can adjust while shooting with EC much better, but our EVF is not going to be as beautiful.

The Fuji website has an article on it that basically says this:

"Turning Natural Live View ON disables the visual effects of in-camera JPG processing. This includes film simulation, white balance, shadow/highlight adjustments. Now the image you see is in the viewfinder and LCD is much closer to the raw output."
