Nikon Z50 Liveview issue



I use the Nikon Z50 and imaging works fine but when I click frame & Focus the application doesn't give a live image.

I can take a snap and see the image but the button Live view seems to do nothing.

Tried these things:

  • Reset Nikon Z50 setting to factory defaults
  • Checked Nikon firmware (=latest)
  • Reinstalled my laptop (windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit)
  • Installed a new laptop with Windows 10 Enterprise but 32 bit version

Always the same result which makes achieving focus very hard.

  • Firmware Nikon: C 1.10 LF 1.00
  • BackyardNikon version 2.0.11 Premium

Do you have any suggestions?

Clear skies.

BYN is a 32-bit app that will run on 64-bit Windows with no issue, so I would not expect it to behave any differently on a 32-bit version of Windows. Also, if the program starts up and connects to the camera with no issues then I would expect that all the prerequisites are working.

Also, if the camera has advanced LiveView autofocus modes, I would try different options. This is especially true if you are testing with an autofocus lens attached to the camera.

Have you tried the pre-release of BYN 2.1.0? It may be using a different version of the Nikon SDK which may give a different result. If you want to try it, just select Downloads at the top of this page and select pre-releases on the right.

Please try 2.1.0 pre-release.

If it still does not work with 2.1.0 pre-release please send me that log file and I will take a look.
