  1. Hey Fifeskies Ok so that all makes sense...thanks for the info for sure. So I bought more extension tubes and have now got a live view working BUT...it only shows in AV mode or fully automatic..when I switch to M mode the screen just goes to a white/gray color This a setting in my camera that I am missing?
