Hi Mates
is there any proper fix to this issue? I've been breaking my head over it.
Usually in a a studio setting we would use settings like manual - f/8 and 160 shutter or f/11 and 125 shutter speed with ISO fixed at 100 - 200. In that case one would see a completely blacked out LCD. There seems to be no way to get an adjusted boost that shows the image on the LCD for focussing etc. This makes using D 800 with live view very difficult for studio use which otherwise the camera is ideal for. Usually much cheaper DSLR's are able to do this live view in studio ..... is this a bug?
Some people have suggested using A mode and then finding focus and switching to M post that / or manually changing aperture till we can see the image on LCD - however these are not usable fixes.

Regards
