I have run into a problem I am sure others have as well.
I have a number of telescopes that I hook up my cameras to to take photos. I remove the lens, and attach to telescope by Nikon T-ring.
Last night I had the desire to make a video using this setup.
I find it strange that once my D810 was attached by t ring to my telescope, I was unable to record any video.
I could see the view in live view, but when I pressed the record button NOTHING happened. No red record light, nothing.
It is a given that the camera does not see the lens (there are no electronic connections for aperture or autofocus) , however, I CAN take photos using this setup. Why does the video recording not work?
Is there a setting I can adjust to make this work?
