Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The Quick Control button, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Your Rebel has a lot of buttons and dials on it and we've looked at several of…them already and we're going to be looking at the rest of these later.…You've got a White Balance button and an Auto-Focus button.…These give you dedicated controls to those features.…But there's another way of controlling your camera, and that's to use the Quick…Control screen which I get to by pressing this Q button.…Now when I do that, my status display mostly stays the same, except now each of…these items is actually editable and I can scroll around to each one of these…controls and change it.…So, for example, let's say that I want to change ISO.…
I can highlight ISO and my guide pops up here to tell me what that's about.…Hit the SET button and I'm into my ISO menu.…So now I can pick a different ISO and hit SET and my camera comes out.…I'm still in Quick Control mode.…Or, for example, I could come in here and dial in Exposure Compensation.…There is another way of changing these parameters.…I can highlight an item and just turn the main dial and it will actually change…
