LiveView Pause - setting current Exposure back to Max with every click


While performing some Planetary Imaging of Jupiter earlier this week, I had occasion to start using the new "True" LiveView Pause in both Frame&Focus and Planetary.


I run with "Max Sensitivity" - for the obvious reasons.

But, while working with Jupiter, it is Bright Enough that I need only 1/40sec at 400ISO.  So, I set both Frame&Focus and Planetary Exposure Plans to that setting.


Then, I found that whenever I used Pause (to save on LiveView Sensor Heating - it was 45*F Ambient instead of the 0*F that some of you are fighting), when I "Un-Paused" the Exposure Plan would immediately return to 2sec at 6400ISO (Max Sensitivity for my 60D).

After about the 3rd round of resetting both the Exposure and ISO, this became OLD.


I can understand asserting Max Sensitivity settings when one changes Mode into either of these LiveView modes (or at least when switching into Frame&Focus), but this Pause behavior is essentially becoming a "Pause Penalty" for anyone who is concerned to use this Pause Feature in order to reduce LiveView-generated Thermal Noise...


Can this be fixed ??  Or is there an unobvious reason this Action must be ??
