Ever since I got my 5DmkII, I've been using the Live View function to zero in on my focal point to get it exactly where I want it. This is especially true when I attach my 50mm f/1.4, a good, sharp lens with AF that sometimes goes awry. The result is that my keeper rate has gone way, way up.
I recently ran into a snafu when I tried to attach my strobe and trigger it with PocketWizards. It doesn't fire. When I turn off Live View, it triggers just fine, but once I turn it on again, it won't trigger my lights. Is there a setting I'm missing somewhere, or is this beyond the capabilities of the 5DmkII? Ultimately, I was hoping to tether my camera to my laptop and capture some portrait images that way. I'm hoping I can find a good work around.
Thanks in advance for your helpful comments.
