activating LifeView, exposure jumps to 1/30

Post by snahl »

Hello,

Status:
Nikon D5 connection to qDD successful and stable.

Problem:
When activating LifeView the value for exposure jumps to 1/30 sec regardless of what the camera was set to before.
The exposure value cannot be set to longer than 1/30 sec.
However the exposure value can be set to any given value shorter than 1/30 sec.

Questions:
How comes? I am puzzled.
Is this a limitation set within the D5 or is it set within qDD?

Feedback and clarification is highly appreciated.

double-check the lv switch on the camera is flipped to camera/photo instead of video...

Thanks for reply.

The LV switch is set to Photo/Camera properly.
When entering LV longest exposure remains to be 1/30 sec.
Exposure Mode is set to M manual.

When in Single shot mode the shutter speed can be adjusted as expected.

So it's still the same, unchanged.
Any other ideas?

Check your camera settings, 1/30 shutter speed in live view would mean you are in video live view mode.
