LiveView flash trigger issue
« on: November 28, 2013, 07:17:01 AM »
Hi guys!

I have a manual lens and I use wireless flash triggered by Elinchrom Skyports. My flash does not fire when in LV, anyone know why or perhaps have a workaround? I can't go out of LV after focusing, because then the shot is oof when I push the button.

Thanks!

Disable the live view silent shooting mode.  Shooting menu 4, it's set to Mode 1 by default.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

EPIC! Thanks Neuro, I would have probably opened the trigger before thinking to change that, lol!
