#4. "RE: "CHIIMP"? Viewing the screen after taking the picture- it's a good idea!"
In response to In response to 3

I agree with Stan, we have some much info available to us to help get better images, and to understand why some don't work so well. Else its just building on bad habits of hoping the image will be ok, and relying on fixing it up later in the computer.

I recommend to my students to look at the image, to learn what the histogram is showing, and to cycle through the exif data.
Yep, it uses up battery power, yep, it takes a few seconds, but as practice begins to confirm what is happening, and the necessary corrections are made, the number of keepers goes up, and the picture possibility can be explored to get the best from it.

Simply taking 30 or 40 pics (I exaggerate) in the hope that one will be ok, doesn't seem all that efficient to me. And you've still got to deal with the excess number of duds at some stage.

Use the LCD and its tools wisely. Chimps are those who look at an image and for the first time they've got a good one and go through the 'oooh ooh oh' cycle.
Rule 1: Creative Photography is not button pressing and dial twirling.
