Hi. I shoot D800e/Live View for most Landscapes. Live View manual focus is great. When I shoot Manual Mode/LV, I set exposure with Spot Metering based on the digital Zone System before even putting the camera on the tripod where the light is not likely to change soon. At other times when I am bracketing or focus stacking I use Aperture Priority / LV with Exposure Compensation usually set to -.3 to -.7 to start. I then check the RGB only to make sure no color channel is clipped.
