I've read the live view threads here and still have a question:

What are the benefits of shooting live view, tripod mode?

I shoot tethered, into Lightroom. Control the camera with Capture Control (and my D4 Powerpack directly from the computer, too). So, what I'm asking is what extra do I get from using live view?

Subjects -- portraits and small products.

Any down side?

Thanks for answering such a simple question.
