i seldom , if not not at all, use live view mode

one question
after the update to 1.10, at using Live View , AF Live, Av mode
the shutter fired twice, which i press the shutter button , and result in one picture

is is a new feature or is this originally already on the 500D
sorry for the noob question, but like i've said, i've seldom used the Live View Mode even if at all

Check to see if the firmware update change your Live VIew AF option to Quick AF.

The first fire is for focusing. The second is for the picture. U can get the first to fire separately by pressing and holding the AE lock button in liveview which is mapped to autofocus.

Yes its 100% official.

Errmmmm..................

Seriously, can't tell any difference after the upgrade. Took me less than 1 minute though.
Painless but...................can't tell any difference.........Don't know if I wasted 1 minute of my life or not................
