Live View Shooting
(Still photo shooting with the LCD monitor)
You can shoot while viewing the image on the camera’s LCD monitor. This is called “Live View shooting”.
Live View shooting is effective for still subjects which do not move. If you handhold the camera and shoot while viewing the LCD monitor, camera shake can cause blurred images. Using a tripod is recommended.

Live Mode and Liveu (Face Detection) Mode Notes
AF operation Focusing will take slightly longer. Even when focus has been achieved, pressing the <p> button will focus again. The image brightness may change during and after the AF operation. If the light source changes while the Live View image is displayed, the screen might flicker and focusing can be difficult. If this happens, stop the Live View shooting and autofocus under the actual light source first. If you press the <u> button in the Live mode, the image will be magnified at the AF point. If focusing is difficult in the magnified view, return to the normal view and autofocus. Note that the AF speed may differ between the normal and magnified views.
