Live view time limit
« on: September 30, 2015, 06:15:13 am »

Ist there a way to disable the switch-off-function of C1's live view? My Sony A7r2 isn't bothered by staying in live view for hours, currently the limit is 20 Minutes for C1 to pause LV.

Thanks

20 mins is the maximum.  I can't think of a situation where it would be running longer than that?

Really? My Canon live view starts in the morning for setting up the scene and runs for hours, sometimes I forget to switch it off during lunch.

having live view on a second large screen is godsend for discussions with stylists, art directors and clients. and it's a royal pain in the butt having to switch it on every 20 minutes, especially as live view rotation is not possible. so I rotate my Eizo by 90degree, which makes using a mouse on that screen difficult.

is there a shortcut for starting live view?

You could write a very simple applescript that resumes live view every 20 minutes and 1 second.

We cover advanced solutions like this in our Capture One Masters Series: https://digitaltransitions.com/event/training

For what it's worth I absolutely agree there should be an "unlimited" option or in the very least something higher than 20 minutes. I dislike any preference limitations that takes control away from the user; if someone feels it is necessary to put a warning "some cameras may perform poorly when using live view for long periods" that is fine. But don't stop the user that wants to proceed; especially since many cameras now can perform quite well with very heavy use of live view.

Just a quick note for clarification... Rotation in Live View is perfectly possible in Capture One with cameras that support setting the live view orientation by the connection SDK (Phase/Leaf). Just not with Canon/Nikon/Sony.

But why is it nor possible with Canon / Nikon / Sony?

Canon's Eos Utility lets me do that (with Canon, of course)
