Live view

Post by franj » Mon May 06, 2019 1:09 am

When shooting in live view mode is it possible to turn off exposure preview? I shoot in studio with strobes and therefore the exposure is always way under making it hard to focus and compose.

Some bodies allow you to turn exposure preview on or off in the body LCD menu. As you discovered, when exposure preview is on and you are using strobes, the live view image is always quite dark making it difficult to compose the shot.

The workaround for this problem is to:

1) If using live view GPU-mode, go to the live view layers tab and increase the Brightness slider.
or
2) if using live view in non-GPU-mode, go to the live view layers tab and use the ISO Pinning feature, which will increase the brightness.

Either workaround increases the brightness in the live view window only and does not affect the captured image exposure.

Hope that helps!
