Home Forums Let’s Talk Photography On Camera Monitors Reply To: On Camera Monitors


Those I have seen are used for video.  I suppose they would work for still photos as well.  I don’t use one and seldom shoot tethered.  I travel with a regular notebook and an external hard drive, as well as some DVD’s.  Every night the cards are downloaded and backed up, so I am ready for the next day.  At the same time I can convert files from raw and check them if I wish.

When in the field, I just check for open eyes and sometimes zoom in to check focus/shake using the camera’s monitor.  To check exposure I look at the histogram.
