Olympus E-330 with Live View

Olympus has announced a 7.1 MP camera that has a true live view on it’s LCD screen. A lot of smaller, consumer DSLR cameras have this feature whereas prosumer and pro cameras don’t—you look through the viewfinder instead.

Whenever someone (who is not a photographer) looks at my Canon EOS 350D camera they ask why the LCD panel doesn’t work. I just figured that live view was a low-end feature. No real photographer would ever use such a feature. Would they?

I wonder how long it will be before Canon and Niko add this along with video to their high-end cameras.
