Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video What are custom functions?, part of Shooting with the Canon 60D.
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 one- third stop increments, or maybe you want…to be sure that the auto focus assist light doesn't fire, because you're shooting…somewhere where that would be disruptive.…These are things that you can easily change through the use of custom functions,…allowing you to tailor your camera to your particular tastes and needs.…
