It appears that the Histogram is only available when reviewing the photos on the LCD screen. I sure wish there was a live histogram like the G series has. That ability sure helps me to fine tune the pictures before I take them. Whenever I use my SX150 IS I miss that histogram terribly since it's like the SX510. Not sure if the CHDK for the SX510 has the ability to show the histogram. Maybe someone in the community knows more about what options CHDK has.

The question is whether the histogram can be used live when composing the image, not when reviewing it. It did not appear that was possible with the SX510. LostReaction wants to use the histogram to adjust the exposure instead of the meter before taking the shot since the histogram provides a more reliable method of exposure. If you know how this can be done, let us know since I could not find that in the owner manual.
