Hi all!

Does anyone knows if it is possible to wake up the 5DIII from Live View mode and keep shooting in live view mode without pressing the LV button again? Till now, when it auto turns off and I wake it up by half pressing, the LV mode goes off.

I am going to take pictures of a nest using phottix hero, and with live view mode I can see the whole frame, so it is better for composition. That's the reason I cannot push the button by myself.

Thanks in advance!

I am possibly misunderstanding your situation. My understanding is that LV turns off when a certain length of inactivity is detected (and possibly a total length of time regardless of activity) to prevent the sensor from overheating. Not really a sleep mode.

Thank you for your answer. There are 2 modes: sleeping energy saving, and self turning off sensor protection. When sleeping mode is on the LV does not turn on automatically again. I will try turning off the sleeping mode and see how it works the sensor protection mode.
