"D800E and Live View" Sun 28-Apr-13 10:24 PM by Rondo5570

I have recently gotten an 800E and have been actively learning its functions. Purchased Winston Hall's video series on the settings and controls for the D800/E and highly recommend it. One of the things that has really impressed me is that in Live View I can now see the image histogram and exposure compensation scale prior to making the image. I may be late to the party, but I have never seen this feature in other Nikon DSLR's. I've owned the D700, D3 and D7000, but this is the first one that I knew would display the histogram in Live View. Not saying that other Nikon cameras didn't do this but if they did I never discovered this feature.
I am really excited now to use this in the field and know what the histogram will look like BEFORE I make an image. I think his will help my photography a lot and will be a real time saver. Thanks to Nikon and thanks to Winston for helping me understand this great feature.
I would appreciate it if anyone who actively uses this would offer their opinion or experience with it and how they use this in their image making and workflow.
