Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Menu navigation and factory defaults, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
There are a lot of settings on your camera and if you've been fiddling with the…thing there is no telling how it might be configured now.…To make sure that your camera matches my camera for the sake of these…demonstrations, we are going to reset yours to the factory defaults.…This can also be a handy thing to do if you ever sell your camera, I suppose you…could also do it if you get your camera so messed up that you can't figure out…why it's doing a particular thing, but at that point I would encourage you to…really try to figure out why it's doing what it's doing so that you can…understand it better.…Think of reset as kind of a nuclear option.…And note that resetting does not reset the clock in the camera.…
You access the Reset command through the menuing system and since this is our…first time going into the menus, we are going to take a quick look at how they work.…This is the menu button right here, press that and the camera's menuing system comes up.…The menuing system is divided into a number of different menus.…
