15089Re: [PanoToolsNG] 40D vs XTi for panos
- Nov 29, 2007I can't talk about fisheye shots specifically, but I have a 40D and I've
found the live preview feature to be invaluable when taking star photos
and other night work. The live preview has up to 10x zoom. Zoomed in
like that, it's much easier to get good crisp focus on stars than trying
to do it through the view finder. That's the one and only time I ever
use live preview, but, for that, it works spectacularly.
I upgraded from a 20D to a 40D for the dust removal, the deeper memory
buffer, the faster processing and the 14 bits/color/pixel it gives you
in raw mode (it also has a slightly larger pixel count, but I was happy
with the resolution of the 20D, so...). Live preview wasn't something I
cared about. I was really surprised when I found out that, in the right
circumstance, it can actually be extremely useful.
