Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Image review and playback, part of Learning the Canon 6D.
…When you take a picture, your camera displays it on the monitor screen.…This image appears for a few seconds, and…then the camera turns off the display to preserve battery.…Now, this is a useful way to quickly review the image without having to…use any buttons or controls.…Once the image pops up on the screen,…you can also use the playback controls to look at other recent photos.…We'll take a look at those controls more in a moment.…Keep in mind though that many photographers discourage this process,…they look at the instant review and call it chimping.…Personally, I tend to turn this feature off for many reasons.…
Press the Menu button and choose the First Record tab.…You'll see at the bottom, Image Review.…Use the multi selector and press the Set button.…You can now change the duration, setting it for 2, 4 or 8 seconds and…infinite hold, or until you take the next picture, or turn it off altogether.…Your camera has several useful playback features as well.…To start reviewing photos,…just press the Play button to begin the image review process.…
