    actually I think it is useful but not critical.

    I thought waist height pictures are quite nice and I find myself kneeling on numerous occasions.

    I think it will be MUCH better than zigview... it for one uses a SEPERATE 8 MEG CCD to do the live feed. Supposedly the same CCD as the one found in oly 8M P&S.

    But I think oly got the pricing all wrong as this DSLR will be priced above entry level ones.... If only it competes at the entry level DSLR, it could be a big factor for P&S upgraders. P&S upgraders usually buy entry level DSLRs...

    I like live LCD feed, and I like one that can twist and turn and take self portrait even better.

    Is it confirm using separate 8MP CCD for the Live LCD Feed, I think that over kill, and increase the cost tremendously

    I supposed the problem is that this viewer will not reflect ISO settings, exposure settings or even White Balance. The point I presumed, most users want out of live preview, is those features, so they don't have to "trial and error".

    live feed is good. gives more options to different shooting styles but I hate the battery sucking part.

    Good uses of livefeed on a tiltable screen:
    - shooting at ground level.. how much can you contort yourself to place your camera on the floor to shoot. Often, encountered by macro shooters snapping insect on ground.
    - shooting above eye level. typical shooting in streets when you just put your cam above head in a crowd and shoot what's in front.
    - putting the cam at waist level and snipe at scenes discreetly for street shooting
    - mounted on a telescope for astro-photos graphs. the scope is pointed to a fixed position and you have to bend yourself at a very awkward angle trying to focus the scope. (you got to try it to know the pain, i failed ).
