A77 In The Studio

Took my A77 into the studio for the first time today. Had it set on Manual & a trigger to fire the flash. Set everything to how the meter reading said & could hardly see anything through the eyepiece or the viewfinder. Only way I could get to see anything was by turning down from 100 to nearly Bulb. Has anyone had this problem & is there a way round it? I had no problem when I did another slot in a set made up in a marquee so obviously something to do with the amount of light. Just a bit baffled.

This is a repeating issue. RTFM: Read the manual. Set the VIEW EFFECTS in the menu to OFF. That's all to remember in a studio. En Set it to ON if you go out in the world.

Thanks for that info...There is nothing about that in the manual I have or if there is I have missed it.

It's definitely in the manual and a very useful feature.
