    Magnified Focus in Live View on A7r?

    Hello all,
    I thought that I had finally worked this out but I can't replicate it. What I am trying to do is magnify the image in Live View so that I can fine tune my focus manually. When I try to do this I can zoom in on the image but it almost instantly/automatically goes back to the normal view before I can get the focus fine tuned. This is driving me a bit batty because I am sure I was able to do this previously. I may have inadvertently changed a setting but I am not sure about that.

    Your help with this would be greatly appreciated as I now have to get serious about using this camera because I am leaving for a photo trip soon.
    Many thanks!
    J. Paul

    I resolved the problem. I just had to change the Live View focus from 2 seconds to no limit.

    It's in the menus under focus peaking turn it to not turn off. You may have it set to like 5 seconds
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
