So I have a question about how the back screen works in live view. I was shooting night shots at Lick Observatory last night and it was dark enough that I could see only dark shapes through the viewfinder. So I went to use the back LCD for live view to compose, focus and shoot. But even when I overexposed the scene, it never made the scene bright enough that I could see anything. It stayed dark. I am used to seeing the exposure change in live view when I change the settings in camera. So my question is, how dark is too dark for the back lcd. Or was I doing something wrong...

Have you tried switching Exposure Simulation to Enabled? I think that may do it.

It was already set to enabled. I also tried it today in the daylight and it works as intended. So I'm assuming that it may have been too dark.

Turn Exposure Simulation to disabled. Enabled was working to show you a dark scene properly as being dark.

My sister has been in the hospital since January 5 recovering from surgery to repair two of three aneurysms. With complications from swelling after her first surgery, strokes and I've lost count of how many surgeries in all, I haven't had my camera out much this month. While heading to the hospital today, which is an hour drive each way, a friend told me about some swans in the area. A slight detour and a LOT of pictures later (my therapy for the day), I walked away with a handful that I liked. This isn't spectacular, but it is fun. It's the little guy saying "Look at me, look at me!"

Not often I find myself in a situation where a wild animal virtually poses for me. And a gorgeous guy he was too. Not to mention the good light. What more could a body ask for?

Thanks, Annie. It was but it someplace that I was really not supposed to be. :eek:

And to think.....all those times playing Army and crawling through the underbrush when I was a kid finally paid off.  :p
