I imagine this information is somewhere, but I can't find it, and hope someone can help.  How do you switch to live view with a Nikon 7000D when using older Nikkor AI lenses or when attached to a telescope?

There's a little rocker switch with the letters LV just above the OK button wheel to the right on the LCD screen.

Thanks Guylian,

 

I knew about the switch, and it works/worked with my newer Nikon lenses, but for some reason it wasn't working before when I had the camera mounted to one of my scopes, or older Nikkor AI lenses.  Now it seems to be working fine with my older lenses, and I'll have to try again with one of the scopes.  Some sort of Nikon gremlin, but it's working now.  Thanks,

 

Best regards,

You also need to make sure you set the lens focus to M not A. when mounted to a telescope.

So much to remember...
