Liv eview (40d) and lens/sensor calibration
- I received yesterday my 40d (from Vistek, in Canada).
I am very happy with the live view option. It made lens calibration
extremely fast and easy. I find that using the viewfinder is good for
an approximation, but taking a photo was way better. Now I don't have
to take as many photos. I can zoom-in into the point of interest, then
rotate the camera.
One suggestion, use the depth-of-field preview, with a small aperture,
and do it under a lot of light.
Another advantage of the 40d will be the ability to get a focusing
screen for manual focusing (I am trying to find one in Canada/USA, but
they don't seem to be available in this side of the world yet). This
will help those who use lens adapter for other companies lenses. You
will not get confirmation, but the screen will make it easier.
