Pete's Tip 3 - prepared for action

This tip can come in useful when you're shooting moving subjects.
Occasionally you may want to have a predefined viewpoint and your subject is moving into the frame. If, like me, you normally take photos with your right eye and have your left eye closed, try keeping the left eye open so you can see the subject in your view as it moves towards the view through the camera. This makes you more prepared to fire the shutter at the precise moment.

If you use your left eye to shoot, keep you right eye open (the only downside to this is that the back of the camera, or your hand, may get in the way)

using a swivel screen on a camera like, let's say, the G1 would also be very useful as you could use both your eyes. But then that wouldn't be proper. And to establish the usefulness we would need to know how fast the G1 focuses and shoots using the screen.
Which we won't know though, as it's improper in the first place, so no use checking it out.

I'm all for LCD screen viewing, fell in love with it on the Olympus E3, and I think I've mentioned before I still have a Nikon Coolpix 900 from way back. I think I'd go as far as saying the G1 is the best so far! But you're invading my tip which is about cameras with proper finders Wink


he he... sorry about that. I'll retreat now Smile
