What is digital preview on live view?

Mainly concerning the 2 new models, What is digital preview on live view? How is like seeing the effects of your settings, ISO, aperture, etc. compared to compacts or mirrorless cameras?

It's the same, except that it's a little bit more laggy and the image disappears while shooting. What you see is still what you get.

It is very useful for checking color channel histograms. I use it all the time.
