This question already has an answer here:
I'been having a bad time trying to shoot photos with manual focus.
When I'm trying to shoot a picture, using the viewfinder it's really hard to see how sharp is the picture you see through the viewfinder. So, most of the time I go to live mode, zoom in, adjust the focus to what I want, then go to viewfinder, adjust everything and shoot.
Doing that, takes me like 30 extra seconds. Any advice to do all of this faster?. I know there are two options, one is the rangefinder, other is change the "ok button" setting to zoom in on live view.
I can't use the rangefinder on manual mode (it's a Shame, I would love to have the exposure meter and the rangefinder at the same time)
And it appears that the nikon d3300 doesn't have the control functions menu to change the behavior of the "ok button" during live mode.
So, How can I get sharper photos using manual focus without taking so long to focus using the live mode?
