Re: Question about focussing in dim light with a flash off camera in live view

I am going to answer one of my own questions. This all came about because I was out with a friend using identical camera/lens/flash but in his live view you could see an image and my was dark. I've just realised (since he dropped his camera round and I could reproduce the problem straight away) that I have hit the left OK button to show the exposure meter and he had not. When I turn the exposure meter off, my live view is no longer dark.
