Problem with live veiw and taking photo
« on: December 22, 2013, 05:53:27 PM »
Hi  Am New to this and may not use the correct terminology.

I have a Kiss 4 (Jap. 550D) with ML installed.

Whilst am still coming to grips with how it all works I have the following problem:-

Having entered live view and set up Exp.  ISO aperture, I then 1/2 press shutter and instead of going through the focusing, the mirror closes  and I then have to take the exposure by pressing the shutter button all the way.  The appears to be no way out of this.

I have checked the instructions an appear to have every thing set correctly.

What am I doing wrong?

I would add that I took a 30min video the other day, indoors, and it came out beautifully.
