Ok tried LIVE VIEW for the first time today doing MACRO winter fun on my 1100d.
However the VIEW cuts out after a set time everytime, i even changed the settings in the menu, unless i missed an activation button!!

Is there a set time or can i change it or did i miss something?

Np, just worked it out, the camera is set to "stand by" after a time. This obviously turns off live view!!!!!

Apparently, you are missing the instruction manual.. :)


What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

But you should be able to change this time and even turn it off under one of the menu settings for 'auto power off' or something similar.

Sometimes it is easier to post a question on the internet and wait for someone perhaps 10,000 miles away to give you the answer, than it is to read the manual.

Jeez, tough crowd tonight, yes i have read the manual, but i would have thought as I AM USING, operative word there USING, LIVE VIEW, then the auto power off would not cut in.

Read manual and it sure does not say that.

I expect if you were recording video, or hitting the shutter, then no, the camera would not power off.

But if you just turned live view on and left the camera there, no fiddling with the controls, or taking pictures, then yes, the camera would assume you've gone away and auto-power off when it's preferences say it time's up.

You can usually change the auto-power off time, or turn it off completely depending on what suits your needs.

understood.. just added some humor to the ALREADY SOLVED thread... guess I should have just bypassed since it was solved.. or better yet... mods lock threads after OP's issue is resolved?

Am I wrong if I say that the Canon cameras also have a mechanism that shuts down live view to protect the sensor from overheating if used over a prolonged time ????

Thanks for the answers, and the humour. Guess i asked for it. However all i was doing was turning on LV then trying to focus then it shuts down, and i have to start all over again, maybe 20 seconds no more but it has shut down by then. I turned off the auto shut down and that seemed to work, maybe i got better at focusing who knows.

But the above post is a great help that is not mentioned anywhere and now i know.

I don't think so. You can take video for a while (don't remember what it is though) and I have not had LV shut down on be when I turn off the auto power off although I try not to have it on for too long and switch it off when I'm not using it.

According to the manual (page 133 of the pdf) even with the auto power off setting switched off Live View will quit after 30 minutes of inactivity, the camera will remain powered on.
