Having problems with your Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera ?

On the E-500, can you shoot using the lcd screen instead of the view finder.

Answers :

No you can't, HOWEVER the newer models you can...should mention that Olympus was the first to make a DSLR camera with dual viewing options...check out their site, they've got some awesome new things. The e-520 and 620 would be my next choices.

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image.
