Shooting in Live View Mode
Although they will not appear in the final picture, flicker, banding, or 
distortion may be visible in the monitor under fluorescent, mercury 
vapor, or sodium lamps or if the camera is panned horizontally or if an 
object moves at high speed through the frame. Bright spots may also 
appear. When shooting in live view mode, avoid pointing the camera at 
the sun or other strong light sources. Failure to observe this precaution 
could result in damage to the camera’s internal circuitry.
Noise may be audible when the camera adjusts aperture. Note that no 
pictures can be taken in live view if a CPU lens with an aperture ring is 
attached with Aperture ring selected for Custom Setting f8 (Customize 
command dials
) > Aperture setting (
0 323). Select Sub-command 
dial when using a CPU lens with an aperture ring.
Shooting ends automatically if the lens is removed.
Live view mode can be used for up to an hour. Note, however, that 
when used in live view mode for extended periods, the camera may 
become noticeably warm and its internal temperature may rise, 
resulting in noise (randomly-spaced bright pixels or fog).
To prevent 
damage to the camera’s internal circuits, shooting will end 
automatically before the camera overheats.
A count-down display will 
appear in the monitor 30 s before shooting ends.
At high ambient 
temperatures, this display may appear immediately when live view 
mode is selected.
During live view, the camera displays shutter speed and aperture based 
on the lighting conditions metered at the start of live view. Exposure is 
metered again for the current subject when the shutter-release button 
is pressed all the way down.
m icon in the monitor indicates that On is selected for Movie 
settings > High-sensitivity movie mode in the shooting menu (
0 72). 
Live view is adjusted for sensitivities of from ISO 6400 to Hi 3, but 
photographs are taken at the sensitivity selected for ISO sensitivity 
 in the shooting menu (
0 110).
Metering can not be changed during live view. Choose a metering 
method before starting live view. To reduce blur in tripod mode, choose 
On for Custom Setting d9 (Exposure delay mode
0 310). To prevent 
light entering via the viewfinder from interfering with exposure, close 
the viewfinder eyepiece shutter (
0 106).
