450 D Live view with flash.
Feb 15, 2010

Taking some still life shots with two remote flash units,
camera on tripod.

I want to use live view, but using my normal procedure
I go to Manual mode, set the shutter to 1/200 or the
synch speed and set the aperture for desired depth of

Of course, the screen is dark or very, very faint,
because that is what would happen without the flash.

This is so you can set exposure visually, I guess.

Is there some way to force the live view to be brighter
in this situation where the flash will supply most of the light?
