    A77 Studio shoot problem

    My brother brought his A77 over so I could try it in my studio.
    I set camera to manual and setup camera to hand held meter readings. I can not see anything thru the view finder. What am I doing wrong?
    I ended up putting a F20 flash on the hot shoe and it turned on the viewfinder I covered the flash with tape so it would not contaminate my strobes. WTF I am so confused.

    There is a setting you have to turn on/off on the A-77 for studio shooting. Don't recall what is is. (Don't have one, but heard it mentioned on DPreview). Something to do with the viewfinder/lcd. HTH

    Thanks for the help, that was it.
    That live view is really a neat function. I can see the pic change without looking at the meter. I do like the A77 but I think I will keep my 850.

    The camera is most likely in exposure simulation, meaning it is showing a realtime representation of what the exposure might look like, so its showing up black because you are in manual and heavily underexposing for ambient conditions. All cameras with liveview have options to turn this on or off..
