The Live View Display
Although they will not appear in the final picture, jagged edges, color fringing, moire, and 
bright spots may appear in the monitor, while bright bands may appear in some areas with 
flashing signs and other intermittent light sources or if the subject is briefly illuminated by a 
strobe or other bright, momentary light source. In addition, distortion may occur if the 
camera is panned horizontally or an object moves at high speed through the frame. Flicker 
and banding visible in the monitor under fluorescent, mercury vapor, or sodium lamps can 
be reduced using Flicker reduction (
0 252), although they may still be visible in the final 
photograph at some shutter speeds. When shooting in live view mode, avoid pointing the 
camera at the sun or other strong light sources. Failure to observe this precaution could 
result in damage to the camera’s internal circuitry.
Depending on the scene, exposure may differ from that which would be obtained when live 
view is not used. Metering in live view is adjusted to suit the live view display, producing 
photographs with exposure close to what is seen in the monitor. In PSA, and M modes, 
exposure can be adjusted by ±5 EV (
0 112). Note that the effects of values over +3 EV or 
under –3 EV can not be previewed in the monitor.
