Onboard Live View While Connected

Post by Joe » Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:21 pm

Hello,
First I would like to say that I appreciate this free software! I have recently installed the stable version 2 and am using it to teather a Nikon D7200. My wife likes to use the onboard camera live view versus the viewfinder however when connected via USB this option seems to be unavailable. I am assuming this is a camera firmware issue and not related to Digicamcontrol. Can anyone confirm this? Is there any solution that would allow teathering for photo review and file storage but maintain all camera functionality.

I appreciate any feedback/support!
Joe

Hi Joe, I'm afraid you're asking too much of Nikon here. ;-) You can use LiveView on the connected computer, but your D7200 refuses to use its internal display while tethered.

I was afraid of that! Thanks for the confirmation.

Good morning, I have the same problem (it does not activate the Live View view) with the D700 on laptop with 32-bit windos XP.
Can I fix it?
Thanks for your help
