Using 8x ND with screen or OVF

I was experimenting a high multiple VND on my Pany GH5. When the ND is set high, the camera (LED screen display, metering) becomes non-responsive. When I adjust the shutter speed or the aperture, the display and meter stutter and I am not sure it changes to represent the adjustment.

Is it a common problem with mirrorless camera?

Is there any work around?

I ended up shooting a picture and then adjust the exposure base on the initial shot to get the following pictures. Definitely not a fun thing to do.

8xND, stacked, f/22, 6sec.
