I have a Canon EOS 650D. It's a decent camera, but when using the live view, the shutter release triggers a blank LCD screen. I assume it's designed that way to hide the mechanism in action.
Anyway theres a significant delay (much longer than the shutter release) so if I use an intervalometer or set a continuous shutter, and try to get some rapid fire shots (particularly for focus stacking), I'm shooting blind.
Due to the nature of my photographic style, using the analog viewfinder is typically out of the question. I do a lot of experimental macro photography, in awkward spots, in strange positions, so I'm usually limited to using the articulated LCD screen to compose my shots.
Is there a way to prevent the blank LCD screen from happening, or shorten the delay? Failing that, can I simply upgrade to a more expensive camera that doesn't have this limitation? Or is it inherent in all DSLRs?
