Hi all, just got my first DSLR in the D5000 and am finding my way round the settings and functions and have discovered what I would call a problem but I am hoping it is something I am doing wrong and can be fixed in the settings or explained ???

If I take a long exposure using S mode when I switch to live view the display is very dark. taking a picture is fine (although it is difficult to use the screen as it is so dark) but if I take video it is terrible, dark and grainy.

Has anyone else found this or does anyone have a clue if it is something I am doing wrong or could there be a fault? To get the view back I have to go in to auto mode and take a pictue

I have uploaded some test video which was the only way to record the live view as taking a photo was fine. Files are here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/root729/

Many thanks,
