| p.1 #1 · D800 & Nikon Liveview LCD settings... |
Hey there -
I've began to use the video out on my Nikon cameras (D700, D800 specifically) for live photobooth setups at weddings. I connect a 7'' external monitor turned towards the front of the camera so people can see a live image of the composition.
Thing is I am only using the D700 because when I turn the liveview on it displays a middle gray exposure - basically no matter what the camera exposure is, the LCD will show what is seen through the lens.
Since I set a super high f-stop (f/16), currently on the D800 the screen just looks BLACK!
Is there a setting on the D800 that shows, rather than the actual exposure of the image on the liveview screen, just the composition?
I know the 5DII (when I was using Canon) was able to do this (there were 2 settings to chose from: relative exposure and viewable image, or something like that).
ALSO, what other Nikon liveview cameras (D3100, D5100, D7000, etc) have the option for seeing the composition rather than the exposed light on the LCD when in liveview mode?
Does this make sense?
Please see image below to see what I'm doing with the photobooth.
