    Default Grey cards and other q's

    Do u use a grey card? Is there a certain brand to buy?

    When shooting, do u use the live view?

    MF or AF?

    I was playing with my camera and the camera manual yesterday and realized using live view lets ya zoom in and see if u have focus down before shooting. I felt semi smart after that haha. I have read the manual before but find when I reread it, I always learn more, like the info was put in after I read it the first time LOL.

    I so have to read my manual again I think! I'm sure I'll learn more now than before. I haven't opened it in like a year I think. I don't use live view. It depends on what I'm shooting I guess. I use AF, I don't trust my eye for MF. lol I have a grey card but I rarely use it I really need to start using it though. Sorry my post doesn't really help lol

    Don't have a grey card, so no help there, sorry.
    As for Live View, I never use it, unless I am holding the camera over my head trying to take a pic. (Ex: ball game, holding the camera over the fence.)
    I ALWAYS use autofocus. Well, I might use manual if it's a non moving subject!

    Um, I use auto focus on my lens, but toggle my focus points in camera... and I never do live view... the few times I tried it I couldn't nail focus or keep up with my fast action kiddos. I dont have a grey card... yet... it is in my amazon cart. I DID just order a reflector (80% off!!!) and some close-up lens filters that had really good reviews and sample photos from reviewers (poor substitute, but I can't afford a macro right now).. Can't wait for things to get here so I can play!
