DSLR are notoriously known not to propose live view through the LCD.

Zigview seems to propose some solution, but I would rather have the live view integrated to save on number of batteries, cables, etc...

It looks like the E510 offers an LCD live view. Do any DSLRs from Nikon or Canon proposes the same ? D80, D40x, Xti ?

Cannon has one cammera coming out with it. and I dare say it's something we will start seeing more and more of. The zig view is cool but a bit exspencive.

"Live View" AFAIK is only present on an Olympus and Panasonic dSLR... We'll see what other companies will do about integrating this feature towards their future models.

I am about to purchase my first DSLR. If Canon is going to do something about it, they'd better do it FAST .

The one Canon DSLR that does provide a version of Live view is the 1d-mkiii

To use it you first activate it (which opens the shutter and moves the mirror out of the way),
Then to take an image the camera must first close the shutter and mirror, reset itself and then finally take take the image.
A slow cumbersom process that turns a blazing fast 10fps camera into a slow P&S.

The LiveView feature in the eos 1d-mkiii is usfull for its intended purpose, to allow for distant remote operation of the camera.

It is a completely usless feature for normal daily usage.
