D810 live view issue in flash photography

  1. I'm sure this question will seem daft to those of you who know the answer, so I beg indulgence. I'm on my 3rd digital SLR but am foxed by a facet of the d810. If I am in manual, as you would expect to be for studio flash lights, the camera's live view seems to follow the adjustment of shutter speed and f stop down to complete darkness, as if it were a live preview. This makes it useless for setting up studio shots - I always use the viewfinder. Is this 'just the way it is' or is it the case that I have a setting wrong? Thanks for reading
     
  2. Press OK while in live view and it toggles between exposure simulation and autogain modes.
     
  3. Thanks Ilkka
