1d X liveview bracketing problem.
« on: October 30, 2012, 07:56:21 AM »
Hi guys!

I was just out shooting and wanted to some HDR and I have my camera set to bracketing, I open LiveView to shoot without mirrorflipping when I discover this:

When I want to spread my bracketing shots I normally use the top wheel and that works, then when I want to move the whole scale over or under I use the rear wheel, that NO LONGER works. I have been through the settings and can't find out why I can't spread with one wheel and move the scale with the other. Now they BOTH spread.

Thanks!

So it's just the way it is and changed from the 1d4?

Thanks anyway!

Seems to be the way it works in normal (VF) shooting, too.  If you press the Mode+AF-Drive buttons to activate bracketing, both main dial and QCD (rear) dial control the spread.  Only when you select the exposure window in the quick (Q button) mode does one dial control bracket spread and the other EC, and that isn't accessible in Live View, so you must use the EC button to move the range.

Thanks Neuro! Now for the real question, why in the name of mother did they change that! I really miss the old way.

Also when using the ec I can't really see what's going when wider spread than +-3.. is this the same with the 5d3? I can't remember, but thought that used the old way...
