Live view and flash off/on exposure preview?

Postby NNN636162091839604840 » Thu May 28, 2020 10:25 am

I don't own a Phaseone myself but my friend is owns one and since he does not use the camera this way he did not know how to do it and he is nice enough to allow me to use it occasionally.
I'm shooting a lot of tabletop and using flash and I need to use Liveview for correct focus.
When I'm shooting I need to open up the aperture and iso to get a image I can see to focus. Both Canon and Fuji has a setting where I can turn off/on the exposure preview in the live view but I can't find it on the Phaseone.
Surely there must be one and I'm just stupid and can't find it, this is the tabletop camera no1 so there has to be one.
I usually shoot tethered but it would be interesting to find out how to change this both in tethered mode and live view on the back of the data back.
Its a IQ4 back with a XF camera.

Hi
All you have to do is enable Auto Gain in liveview.
See page 51 in the manual

Is there a way to do this from Capture1 as well or is it only from the camera?

Thanks Ulf.
I am sure (and hope) there will be a simple answer to this since it still does not work.
When I'm swiping from left all I get is a shutter button and a white balance dropper, on the right hand I have the histogram and more options but no auto gain off/on function that I can see.
Is there an option that I can choose to get those more functions on the DB display?

Hi

First thing would be to check that firmware is up todate as this did not exist in early versions of the IQ4 firmware.
And if you need help, contact us in support:

Yes the firmware is all up to date as of a week ago, that was my first check but it did not show anything new in this.
I will try to contact you guys and see if I can solve this somehow next time Im in front of the camera.
Thank you for your help.
