Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Custom functions, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
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…
