Custom Function Setting Items

You can customize camera features on the [Custom Functions] tab to suit your shooting preferences. Any settings you change from default values are displayed in blue.

C.Fn1

Exposure level increments

Sets 1/2-stop increments for the shutter speed, aperture value, exposure compensation, AEB, flash exposure compensation, etc.

  • 1/3: 1/3-stop

  • 1/2: 1/2-stop

Note

  • Display when set to [1/2-stop] is as follows.

ISO speed setting increments

You can change the manual ISO speed setting increment to a whole stop.

  • 1/3: 1/3-stop
  • 1/1: 1-stop

Note

  • Even if [1-stop] is set, ISO speed will be automatically set in 1/3-stop increments when ISO Auto is set.

Speed from metering/ISO Auto

You can set the ISO speed status after the metering timer ends in cases where, for ISO Auto operation in Program AE/Shutter-priority AE/Aperture-priority AE/Manual exposure/Bulb mode, the camera has adjusted the ISO speed during metering or during the metering timer.

  • Restore Auto after metering: Restore Auto after metering
  • Retain speed after metering: Retain speed after metering

Bracketing auto cancel

You can specify to cancel AEB and white balance bracketing when the power switch is set to Power off.

  • ON: Enable
  • OFF: Disable

Bracketing sequence

The AEB shooting sequence and white balance bracketing sequence can be changed.

  • 0−+: 0, -, +
  • –0+: -, 0, +
  • +0−: +, 0, -
AEB White Balance Bracketing
B/A Direction M/G Direction
0: Standard exposure 0: Standard white balance 0: Standard white balance
−: Underexposure −: Blue bias −: Magenta bias
+: Overexposure +: Amber bias +: Green bias

Number of bracketed shots

The number of shots taken with AEB and white balance bracketing can be changed.

When [Bracketing sequence] is set to [0, -, +], the bracketed shots will be taken as shown in the following table.

  • 3: 3 shots
  • 2: 2 shots
  • 5: 5 shots
  • 7: 7 shots
(1-stop/step increments)
1st Shot 2nd Shot 3rd Shot 4th Shot 5th Shot 6th Shot 7th Shot
3: 3 shots Standard (0) -1 +1
2: 2 shots Standard (0) ±1
5: 5 shots Standard (0) -2 -1 +1 +2
7: 7 shots Standard (0) -3 -2 -1 +1 +2 +3

Note

  • If [2 shots] is set, you can select the + or − side when setting the AEB range. With white balance bracketing, the second shot is adjusted toward the negative side for the B/A or M/G direction.

Safety shift

If the subject brightness changes and the standard exposure cannot be obtained within the autoexposure range, the camera will automatically change the manually selected setting to obtain the standard exposure. [Shutter speed/Aperture] applies to Shutter-priority AE or Aperture-priority AE mode. [ISO speed] applies to Program AE, Shutter-priority AE, or Aperture-priority AE mode.

  • OFF: Disable
  • Tv/Av: Shutter speed/Aperture
  • ISO: ISO speed

Note

  • Safety shift overrides any changes to [ISO speed range] or [Min. shutter spd.] from default settings in [Shooting: ShootingISO speed settings] if standard exposure cannot be obtained.
  • The minimum and maximum limits for the safety shift with the ISO speed are determined by [Auto range] (). However, if the manually set ISO speed exceeds the [Auto range], the safety shift will take effect up or down to the manually set ISO speed.
  • Safety shift will take effect as necessary even when flash is used.

C.Fn2

Same expo. for new aperture

The maximum aperture value may decrease (the lowest f/number may increase) in Manual exposure mode (manual exposure shooting) with ISO speed set manually (except when set to ISO Auto) if you (1) Change lenses, (2) Attach an extender, or (3) Use a zoom lens with a variable maximum aperture value. This function prevents the corresponding underexposure by adjusting ISO speed or shutter speed (Tv value) automatically to maintain the same exposure as before (1), (2), or (3).

With [ISO speed/Shutter speed], the ISO speed is automatically adjusted within the ISO speed range. If exposure cannot be maintained by adjusting ISO speed, shutter speed (Tv value) is automatically adjusted.

  • OFF: Disable
  • ISO: ISO speed
  • ISO/Tv: ISO speed/Shutter speed
  • Tv: Shutter speed

Caution

  • Does not respond to changes in effective aperture value from changes in magnification when macro lenses are used.
  • Cannot provide the same exposure as before (1), (2), or (3) if [ISO speed] is set and the exposure cannot be maintained at speeds set in [ISO speed range].
  • Cannot provide the same exposure as before (1), (2), or (3) if [Shutter speed] is set and the exposure cannot be maintained at speeds set in [Custom Functions: Set shutter speed range].

Note

  • Also responds to changes in the highest f/number (minimum aperture).
  • The original exposure setting is restored if you perform (1), (2), or (3) with [ISO speed], [ISO speed/Shutter speed], or [Shutter speed] set and do not adjust ISO speed, shutter speed, or aperture value before returning the camera to the original state, before (1), (2), or (3).
  • Shutter speed may change to maintain exposure if the ISO speed increases to an expanded ISO speed when [ISO speed] is set.

AE lock meter. mode after focus

For each metering mode, you can specify whether to lock the exposure (AE lock) once subjects are in focus with One-Shot AF. The exposure will be locked while you keep pressing the shutter button halfway. Select metering modes for AE lock and add a checkmark [Check]. Select [OK] to register the setting.

Set shutter speed range

You can set the shutter speed range. In Flexible-priority AE, Shutter-priority AE, or Manual exposure mode, you can set the shutter speed manually within your specified range. In Program AE and Aperture-priority AE mode, or in Flexible-priority AE mode with shutter speed set to [AUTO], the shutter speed is set automatically within your specified range (except for movie recording). Select [OK] to register the setting.

  • Lowest speed

    Can be set in a range of 30 sec.–1/4000 sec.

  • Highest speed

    Can be set in a range of 1/8000 sec.–15 sec.

Set aperture range

You can set the aperture value range. In Flexible-priority AE, Aperture-priority AE, Manual exposure, or Bulb mode, you can set the aperture value manually within your specified range. In Program AE and Shutter-priority AE mode, or in Flexible-priority AE mode with the aperture value set to [AUTO], the aperture value is set automatically within your specified range. Select [OK] to register the setting.

  • Max. aperture

    Can be set in a range of f/1.0–f/64.

  • Min. aperture

    Can be set in a range of f/91–f/1.4.

C.Fn4

Add cropping information

Adding cropping information displays vertical lines for the aspect ratio specified in shooting, so that you can compose shots as if shooting with a medium- or large-format camera (6×6 cm, 4×5 inch, and so on).

When you shoot, instead of cropping images recorded to the card, the camera adds aspect ratio information to images for cropping in the Digital Photo Professional (EOS software).

You can import images to Digital Photo Professional on a computer and easily crop images to the aspect ratio set at the time of shooting.

  • OFF: Disable
  • 6:6: Aspect ratio 6:6
  • 3:4: Aspect ratio 3:4
  • 4:5: Aspect ratio 4:5
  • 6:7: Aspect ratio 6:7
  • 5:6: Aspect ratio 10:12
  • 5:7: Aspect ratio 5:7

Caution

  • Cropping information can only be added when [Shooting: ShootingCropping/aspect ratio] is set to [Full-frame].
  • JPEG or HEIF images are not saved at the cropped size if you use the camera to process RAW images with cropping information (). In this case, RAW processing produces JPEG or HEIF images with cropping information.

Note

  • Lines indicating your specified aspect ratio are displayed on the screen.

Audio compression

Sets audio compression for movie recording. [Disable] allows higher audio quality than when audio is compressed, but file sizes are larger.

  • ON: Enable
  • OFF: Disable

Caution

  • Editing movie files recorded with [Disable] and then saving them with compression will also compress the audio.
  • Audio is compressed even if [Disable] is selected when [Movie rec quality] is set to Full HD29.97fpsIPB (Light) (NTSC) or Full HD25.00fpsIPB (Light) (PAL).

Default Erase option

You can set which option is selected by default in the erase menu (), which is accessed by pressing the Erase button during image playback or during review after shooting.

By setting an option other than [Cancel], you can simply press SET to erase images quickly.

  • Cancel: [Cancel] selected
  • Erase: [Erase] selected
  • RAW: [EraseRAW] selected
  • J/H: [Erase non-RAW] selected

Caution

  • Be careful not to erase images accidentally when an option other than [Cancel] is set.

Release shutter w/o lens

You can specify whether shooting still photos or movies is possible without a lens attached.

  • OFF: Disable
  • ON: Enable

Retract lens on power off

You can set whether to retract gear-type STM lenses (such as EF40mm f/2.8 STM) automatically when the camera's power switch is set to Power off.

  • ON: Enable
  • OFF: Disable

Caution

  • With auto power off, the lens will not retract regardless of the setting.
  • Before detaching the lens, make sure that it is retracted.

Note

  • When [Enable] is set, this function takes effect regardless of the lens's focus mode switch setting (AF or MF).

Add IPTC information

Registering IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) information to the camera from EOS Utility (EOS software) enables you to record (add) this information to JPEG/HEIF/RAW still photos at the time of shooting. This is helpful in file management and other tasks using the IPTC information.

For instructions on registering IPTC information to the camera and details on the information you can register, refer to the EOS Utility Instruction Manual.

  • OFF: Disable
  • ON: Enable

Caution

  • IPTC information is not added when you record movies.

Note

  • During playback, you can check whether IPTC information was added.
  • You can use Digital Photo Professional (EOS software) to check IPTC information in images.
  • IPTC information registered to the camera is not erased if you select [Custom Functions: Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn)] (), but the setting changes to [Disable].

C.Fn5

Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn)

Selecting [Custom Functions: Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn)] clears all Custom Function settings except [Customize buttons] and [Customize dials].

Note

  • Performing [Custom Functions: Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn)] does not clear settings configured in [Custom Functions: Customize buttons] and [Custom Functions: Customize dials].
