Hi Shutter Bug, noticed your interest in learning more about histograms, I stumbled across this tutorial, and found it explained the principles very clearly. Some other very good tutorials on this site as well. Hope this helps

That's a great article! One thing I'd like to point out is that the Live View histogram is not related to the final image histogram. I sometimes wonder why they even included this feature, as it's very misleading in its current functionality. For example, as you alter your exposure settings the live histogram does not change to reflect the exposure difference. It's really just a graph of what the camera sees and has no relevance to exposure

Glad you found the tutorialuseful steve and jbabbage

jbabbage, those are very valid points, I suppose by using this feature it could give you an indication that you could alter your shooting position in order to capture or reduce the amount of light? Only a thought!

As you have quite correctly said though the histogram does not change to reflect the exposure difference when you alter the exposure settings.

You're welcome, Steve. I seem to remember reading something about it on a thread somewhere, but I double checked last night before I posted and sure enough, that is the case. I really don't know why it's even available.

It's available because so many people complained about no live histogram on the S7000, now the complaint is that it does not change to reflect changes you make, perhaps that will be corrected on the S9x00's sucessor.
