Sorry, I'm a video shooter, do I have to go into my custom settings and change a specific thing?
Sorry, for the delay. Yes, you do. Or, you could simply not use C3 mode. Or, you could make the change, and then re-save the settings to C3, which is what I think is the best course of action.
I am saying make the change to "Release Shutter Without A Lens" setting, and then re-save to C3.
"...to get my nice new EOS R to work with my samyang 14mm"
It's a Canon camera, probably best to use Canon lenses. Remember not being a Canon lens the camera doesn't know it is there.
It only works one time and I have to set it again to shoot without the lens again??? What am I missing????
What shooting mode are you using? Custom shooting modes can be enabled to reset any settings changes you may make.
I am in the C3 Mode
Just as I suspected. You are shooting in a custom shooting mode. That's the problem, then. Check the settings for your custom modes. The settings are being reset back to the C3 defaults as soon as the [meterIing] timer expires.
