Hi. No you can't shoot by viewing the LCD, only by using the eye-level viewfinder. Some SLR cameras have "live-view", which lets you use either the eye-level finder or the LCD. It really isn't a very good method of shooting with an SLR, as you first have to lock the mirror up, compose your shot, then drop the mirror back down. Using the eye-level finder also blocks out the bright light that makes the LCD difficult to use in sunlight. Hope this helps answer your question.

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?
