Live View Time Question

Hi Everyone, I have a question about the Live View setting. I am trying to figure out how to change the amount of time it is active. It seems to shut itself off after about a minute or so (I haven't timed it yet.). I am finding the set time to be too short.

I have read the manually, but I may have missed it. I want to be able to vary the amount of time the Live View is active. For instance, when taking interval shots where a long delay is necessary or when waiting for people to assemble for a group shot.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think the problem is coming from your camera settings.
Please check the Auto Power off time setting in your camera, as far as I remember the default setting is 1 minute. You can change this time or just cancel this function. I do not have my camera with me now, so please check it yourself.

Good luck!

It worked! The power off setting keeps the Live View active for the duration and then wakes back to normal mode with a touch on the shutter release. Thanks for your help.
