Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The Info button, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Your camera has a lot of features and parameters and you might not always…remember exactly how they're all configured.…Fortunately, there's an easy way to get a summary of the camera's essential…settings, and that's the INFO button right here.…If when I'm in Program mode I press the INFO button, I get this screen full…of status information.…First, Freespace, the amount of space available on my card in bytes, not number…of images available.…I've got 3.68 Gigabytes available.…I'm shooting in the sRGB color space.…I have no White Balance Shift or Bracketing dialed in.…
Live View is enabled.…Sensor Cleaning is enabled.…You can see the camera with the little zs over it, that indicates that the camera…is going to doze off in 30 seconds if I don't do anything, which probably means…I need to talk faster.…Beeping is enabled.…That's the beeping that I get when I half-press the Shutter button.…There is the camera dozing off, so I'm going to hit the INFO button again.…Red-Eye reduction is disabled right now.…
