I'm thinking of acquiring a Nikon D5000. I like its articulating LCD and interval shooting. I plan to use live view most of the time. Malakas ba kumain ng battery yung live view niya?
99% of the time i use the viewfinder; easier and faster. i mainly use the lcd for review and live view for stationary subjects, and indoor studio portraits.
for fast paced shoots, in and outs, most of the time i even have my lcd flipped close. one feature that made me get the d5000 over other, even higher models.
