When I switch into Live Mode, the screen is initially very dark, then when I press the AF-L button, it illuminates to the brightness I would expect long enough to grab focus, then turns dark again, so dark that I can;t even see the image in bright daylight.
Using a 70-300 NIkon 4.5 = I had this problem before, reset all the commands, and it fixed it, but it's back today. Only change I made to the settings was switching Autofocus mode to F but F or S doesn;t affect the darkness.
Any clue about that?
