    Default How to switch to liveview mode on a 400D

    Before you say anything, i dont own a 400D. My friend has just rented one and has no idea how to switch on the live view mode. I havent got my hands on it yet so im asking 400D users here instead. (:
    cheers!

    The 400D doesn't have Live View, only on the newer 450D.

    valphoto: you might wanna read about the Quick Mode and Live Mode for the live view captures, i fell victim to thinking everythings auto focussed even on live view... got alot of potentially nice photos ending up unfocussed from my japan trip... sobz... its on page 102 of the manual! Just don't forget to press the * button to execute AF. Normally i use Quick Mode as its faster!

    Cheers!

    Read the manual; it's clearly spelt out there.

    400D don't have this feature. Tried 450D and noticed that live view cannot be focused after it has been activated. So i think it's pretty useless...most of the time have to rely on viewfinder to ensure that the pics are well focused...

    Sometimes makes you wonder why Canon includes an user manual with the camera...

    Yeah, Canon should make that manual an optional item that buyers have to pay for - that way more people would read it

    Aye! Same here! I usually just play around with the camera first, until I'm unsure of some settings then I'll refer to the manual. Heh heh, I didn't even know how to switch to liveview mode before attending the workshop...

    Let's hope Canon improves their LV focusing system so it at least comes up to par with the Sony and Olympus system.
