just got my first DSLR this weekend and my live view, despite me enabling it and using the more creative modes, will not work.
any suggestions, experiences with same thing, etc?

Hi boxgirl73

Live View only works in P, Tv, Av, and M modes. It will not work in the full auto or other creative modes. It's all in the manual ...

Kind regards,

when in doubt consult the manual!

Intuitively, whenever I have problems, I start with a simple solution: RTFM.

If i remember correctly its a custom menu setting that you use to enable it by pressing "set" or "ok".
