The Most Diverse Composing Options Available in Digital Photography
The largest LCD monitor ever in an SLR with interchangeable lenses (as of February 2007), the 3.0-inch LCD monitor on the EOS-1D Mark III contains another: a Live View option, where the photographer can compose and shoot directly from the LCD monitor. Achieved via a menu setting (by raising the SLR camera's mirror) and perfect for a number of applications, the Live View function enables the photographer to zoom in and navigate the composition at 5x or 10x normal size, while enabling critical manual focus and allowing more attention to detail. Users can even choose a grid overlay, perfect for architectural photography.
3.0" LCD Monitor
In the studio or even on location, the Live View function can be used remotely, via a computer through the 1D Mark III's USB connection.
