Leaf Live View

Postby GeoffreyGG » Tue Sep 27, 2011 11:25 am

I was wondering if there are any special exposure tricks for using live view. I was trying to shoot an interior scene, and had the camera pointed at a window with some moderate outside light as well as some interior light (high and low light levels). The contrast seemed to blow out the live view and make it unusable - although it wasn't so great a range. I had the camera wide open and tried adjusting the ISO, but that didn't help. Am I missing something, and is there a place in the manual to get some information on how live view works?

Also, is greater than 100% viewing possible in Live View.

Overall, it seems to work well (LC 11.5.1), although I'm far from expert in this. Thanks!

In this sort of situation you can try closing the aperture a bit (as long as it doesn't mess up your focusing) or use an ND filter

In LEaf Capture the only zoom option is 100%. In Capture One you can get 400%

Yair -

Thanks for the reply. So if I understand this right, you can adjust the f stop, and the live view will somehow recognize this? Does it shut down the lens, or just calibrate as if you have?

I should have pointed out that stopping down will help on cameras/ lenses that allow this e.g Copal, Hasselblad V, Mamiya RZ etc.

On an SLR-type body you can press the stop down button if there is one

FWIW, have just "calibrated" lens on the Hy6 to the Leaf back, using the Hy6 built-in focus adjustment. Is this procedure documented anywhere? If you'd like a draft could be provided... Really a great feature, although a bit OT.
