live view and shutter speed

Question

Ive got a canon M50 and want to know how to get a live view that observes a long shutter time. What I notice is that shutter speeds above about 1/2 second is it still captures frames around 2 or 3 frames per second.

I have a ZWO camera and the software with it has live view with shutter speed setting and when the time is cranked up to 1/2 second or more it will wait for the frame to finish and display it.

Is there a way to make BYE operate in the same manner with long shutter times?

For Canon cameras, the exposure setting does not control the frame rate. It does control how much the camera brightens the image, which is always just a few milliseconds long. This is how the camera works and BYE cannot change it, since it must go through Canon EOS SDK to control the camera.

If you want longer duration images on BYE's Frame & Focus screen, use Snap images. Snap images are small JPG images that update quicker than RAW images. You can set the Snap image parameters and then Loop to continuously update the image. Snap images can also be used for focusing, with FWHM and HFD focus metrics.
