"Nikon D7000 Exposure Meter Missing In Live View?"


Lincoln, US
          

Hi Folks,

I recently watched a video on Adorama Tv with Mark Wallace. In it he was using a D3S in Live View Mode and when he adjusted the shutter and aperture I could see it on the meter in the right hand side of the LCD,as well as seeing the numbers changing.

I've put my D7000 and D300 in Live View and while the shutter and aperture settings are visible, I have no meter in either of them. Is this function only available on the D3S?

Regards,

Jim

As far as I can tell feature is not available on the D7000, D300 or D300s.

This was the single most disappointing thing about my new D7000. Even my old Sony DSC-828 had this built in, and it was 7 years old. Oh well.

Jim,

This is a feature on the D3S and not on the D7K to reiterate the other folks.

The drawback then, for me, is getting a nominal setting in the h.264/MPEG4 codec on the D7K which is the reason we invested in two of them, for video.

This means we need to reset, test shoot and make appropriate lens choices, lean towards neutral picture control, and so on.

I've absorbed the very in depth tutorials on the DSLR thread, plus watched many a web training video and resolve to conclude that yes, some features are missing from the two bods which is unfortunate.

The bright side is if I had waited around for Nikon to step up with the next generation, I would have missed a TON of content.

Sure the D90 was simply good enough at, for some things, and way short on others.

I guess I'll be happy when the D4 hits or whatever it is to know, the best low light camera will still be the D3S even with the HD video at .mov and 720, and that the D7K will still be the first generation Nikon native h.264 platform, which at 16MP has no shame because video is an entirely different medium.

Lighting, incidence meters, reflectors, sand bags, the list is endless but each time out there is improvement so I'm glad I didn't wait around for the in view metering but yes, I agree it's been overlooked on the machine.

Thanks and good luck,

Rob
