Hi all, great project and great forum.

I am helping a photographer friend build this and don't have a lot of camera knowledge myself. Hoping you guys can help me.

I have managed to get a version of this project working, however the camera does not fire when I have the LCD viewfinder active with the subject, only when it is off. When on, just the little bar at the bottom with the exposure range (at least i think that is what it is) flashes for a second and then nothing. Is this normal? Or should it be able to work when the LCD is on? The camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T3i.
