By now you've probably come to realize that your camera has a lot of functions and features. Many of these functions can be modified and customized through the use of Custom Functions. For example, maybe you would prefer that your exposure compensation changes go in full stop increments instead of 1/3 stop increments, or maybe you want to be sure that the autofocus assist light doesn't fire because you're shooting somewhere where that would be disruptive. These are things you can easily change through the use of Custom Functions, allowing you to tailor your camera to your particular taste and needs.
Custom Functions are not available in Auto mode nor can you get to them in most Scene modes. You'll need to be in program or a priority or manual mode to get to the Custom Functions menu. So to get them, I'm going to press the menu button and if I come all the way over here to the third tools menu, the very first item is Custom Functions. So I'm going to hit the Set button to go in there and down here at the bottom here is a long list these are the 11 custom functions that I have and you can see there is a little brown line above it to indicate that I'm currently looking at the first one.
So I can just go back and forth through these with the left and right arrow keys, and if I hit the Set button I get a cursor that I can move up and down to alter the function, and when I do I can see which menu item of that function I've chosen. So I've chosen the first item here, so this is kind of a quick way to see which custom functions you've altered. In the rest of this chapter, we're going to go through and look at just some of the critical custom functions that you're going to want to know about.
