3 Custom Function SettingsN
C.Fn-04 Shutter/AE lock button
0: AF/AE lock
1: AE lock/AF
Convenient when you want to focus and meter separately. Press the <
button to autofocus and press the shutter button halfway to attain AE lock.
2: AF/AF lock, no AE lock
In the AI Servo AF mode, you can press the <A> button to stop
the AF operation momentarily. This prevents the AF from being
thrown off by any obstacle passing between the camera and
subject. The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.
3: AE/AF, no AE lock
This is useful for subjects which keep moving and stopping
repeatedly. In the AI Servo AF mode, you can press the <
to start or stop the AI Servo AF operation. The exposure is set at the
moment the picture is taken. Thus, the focusing and exposure will
always be at the optimum point as you wait for the decisive moment.
C.Fn-05 AF-assist beam
Enables or disables the EOS-dedicated Speedlite’s AF-assist beam.
The AF-assist beam is emitted when necessary.
1: Does not emit
C.Fn-06 Exposure level increments
Sets 1/2-stop increments for the shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, AEB, etc.
C.Fn-04 and C.Fn-19-0, 1, 2 (p.157) both have AF start/stop and AE lock
functions. If you have set both these Custom Functions and you execute
both Custom Function operations, the latter operation will not work. The only
exception will be when AF stop is executed after AF start.
The exposure level will be displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel as shown below.
