Re: D800 live view metering

I've noticed Live View makes shooting impossible in a dark studio when in manual mode. The LCD shows the subject at the given shutter speed and aperture at the ISO chosen. So at f/22.8 at 1/60 sec and ISO 100, the LCD is black. I have to change to A mode to focus with Live View, which is the most accurate way to focus macro subjects. Annoying, but not impossible to deal with. When using studio strobes, M mode is the only way to go.
