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.

[Custom Functions1]

Exposure level increments

You can specify to use 1/2-stop increments as the increments for shutter speed, aperture value, exposure compensation, AEB, flash exposure compensation, and FEB.

  • 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
  • : 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: StillsISO 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.

[Custom Functions2]

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].
  • Shutter speed is limited to 1/8000 when [Shooting: Shutter mode] is [Electronic] and [Same expo. for new aperture] is set to [Shutter speed] or [ISO speed/Shutter speed].

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.

[Custom Functions3]

AE Microadjustment

Caution

  • Normally, this adjustment is not required. Perform this adjustment only if necessary. Note that performing this adjustment may prevent you from obtaining suitable exposure.

You can fine-tune the standard exposure level. Effective if images in autoexposure shooting without exposure compensation usually seem underexposed or overexposed.

  • OFF: Disable
  • ON: Enable

    To access the adjustment screen, select [Enable], then press the Q (Quick Control) button. Standard exposure can be adjusted in a range of ±1 stop, in 1/8-stop increments. Set on the positive side if shots tend to be underexposed and on the negative side if they tend to be overexposed.

Caution

  • The effective exposure compensation range available in movie recording remains unchanged if you adjust standard exposure with AE Microadjustment, and only the standard exposure level is changed. An exposure compensation amount equivalent to the AE Microadjustment amount is not applied to resulting images if the effective exposure compensation range in movie recording is exceeded (for example, an exposure compensation amount of +1 stop is not applied if AE Microadjustment is set to +1 stop and exposure compensation to +3 stops).

Note

  • Exposure compensation can be set up to ±3 stops from the adjusted standard exposure when shooting.

FE Microadjustment

Caution

  • Normally, this adjustment is not required. Perform this adjustment only if necessary. Note that performing this adjustment may prevent you from obtaining suitable flash exposure.

You can fine-tune the standard flash exposure level. Effective if main subjects in autoflash shooting without flash exposure compensation usually seem underexposed or overexposed.

  • OFF: Disable
  • ON: Enable

    To access the adjustment screen, select [Enable], then press the Q (Quick Control) button. Standard flash exposure can be adjusted in a range of ±1 stop, in 1/8-stop increments. Set on the positive side if main subjects tend to be underexposed and on the negative side if they tend to be overexposed.

Limit continuous shot count

You can limit the maximum burst for continuous shooting, so that while you keep holding down the shutter button with continuous shooting set, the camera automatically stops shooting after the specified number of continuous shots.

You can set it from 99 to 2 exposures. Pressing the Erase button returns the setting to [Disable].

When [Disable] is set, continuous shooting can continue up to the maximum burst shown at right in the viewfinder.

Restrict drive modes

You can restrict the drive modes available with the Drive mode/AF operation selection button.

[Custom Functions6]

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: StillsCropping/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

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

Shutter release time lag

Normally, the camera controls shooting so that the shutter-release time lag is consistent, but by setting [Shortened], you can disable this control to shorten the shutter-release time lag.

  • : Standard
  • : Shortened

Caution

  • Shutter-release time lag varies by shooting conditions, type of lens, aperture value, and other factors.

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

  • OFF: Disable
  • ON: Enable

[Custom Functions7]

Retract lens on power off

You can set whether to retract gear-type STM lenses (such as RF35mm F1.8 Macro IS 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.
