Live View ShootingN
Instructions for setting the [6 Live View function settings] menu’s
[Silent shoot.] are explained below.
The shooting sound will be quieter than when Live View shooting is
not used. Continuous shooting is also possible. For high-speed
continuous shooting, it will be approx. 6 fps.
When you press the shutter button completely, only one shot will be
taken. While you keep holding down the shutter button, further
camera operation will be suspended. Then when you return to the
shutter button’s halfway position, the camera operation will resume
and the shooting sound will occur only then. By delaying the
shooting sound, the disturbance can be minimized. Even if
continuous shooting is set, only a single shot can be taken in this
If you use a TS-E lens to make vertical shift movements or use an
Extension Tube, be sure to set it to [Disable]. Setting it to [Mode 1]
or [Mode 2] will result in incorrect or irregular exposures.
When you press the shutter button completely, the shutter will sound
like it took two shots. However, only one shot will be taken.

If flash is used and [Mode 1] or [Mode 2] has been set, the operation will
be the same as the [Disable] setting.
When using a non-Canon flash unit, set it to [Disable] (p.106). The flash
will not fire if it is set to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
