- Live View is a camera ability using the rear LCD to display a live preview of a scene rather than viewing through the lens. Live view can show what an exposure will actually look like, whereas looking through a non-electronic viewfinder will show a scene as it appears to the human eye. In addition to removing guesswork in choosing an exposure, Live View is used as a primary viewing method when shooting video.
