Hi all - I just got my hands on an S1R to play around with. Most of my shooting is in manual mode and it appears that in order for one to see what's going on with exposure as aperture/shutter speed/ISO values are changing, you need to turn on the 'Constant Preview' feature. Problem is that everything in both the EVF and monitor is updating in slow-motion, which makes it unusable. Anyone else experiencing this? Am I missing something?

'Constant Preview' simulates aperture and shutter settings. With slow shutter speed, you will see the effect in the EVF, with fast shutter speed, EVF updates will be smooth.

There are two additional settings that can be triggered only by assigning them to a function button. One is "Preview Aperture Effect" which shows you DOF while keeping the button pressed. The other is "Preview" that toggles between preview modes (see manual page 188) and is by default assigned to Fn2.
