Does Pentax K-7's live view works like Sony Alpha's live view, where you can focus and snap pictures direct from the LCD live view, rather than depending on the optical viewfinder? Can anyone let me know? Thanks!!!
Sometimes when composing a shot from a difficult perspective, i.e. low on the ground, or high, the Live view would be helpful.
On some other occasions, family and friends may help you to take photos of yourself with others. If no Liveview, they may not know how to look through the optical viewfinder.
i always had problems composing grp photos with k100d if theres nobody else around to take and no tripod so i have to set it up on a chair/table/random piece of furniture, eg at house parties.
With k20d live view its much less of a problem, almost a godsend. although the shutter lag on it is really terror and it's quite a pain to adjust settings on tt half-baked implementation. K7 should be better i hope.
Yeah, but only by pre-production version, not really for quality checking. 30fps HD w/ sound, that's pretty cool already, plus you can change aperture along the way, even Canon 5DII didn't have it (but Canon saw our K-7's capability, they just updated their firmware to make 5DII capable of this too :bsmilie.
