eos 70d

I have a new 70d and have found that when using the live view screen you cannot adjust the shutter speed below 1/30 sec using the touch screen.

The screen will also only show the shutter simulation if its set above this 1/30, anything below and the screen is too dark to see.

This seems a bit odd as i know my mates eos 6d does allow it.

Any ideas

Re: eos 70d

I have the 70D also and in live view using touch screen, I can go pretty much the whole range of shutter speeds. From 30 seconds to just about 1/8000 of a second and thats when it gets dark. At 1/30 of a second there is plenty of light..

Re: eos 70d

You are in manual mode, correct?  Not to be insulting, but you never know.

 

And you're referring to setting the shutter via touch screen only, not the mechanical knobs?

No, I was in Shutter priority (Tv). You hadn't mentioned the mode you were in. I'll try that this weekend

yes manual mode on live view screen won't adjust via touch screen below 1/30s. Using the dials will also not go below this in live view.
