7D customization thread - what do you do?
Oct 3, 2009

7D offers quite a few customization options - both in terms of custom functions as well as button / menu mappings. Thought it would be good to share best practices, ideas and views on how things work for other owners

I am just moving on from my 400D, so just a few custom functions so far - 2nd curtain sync, disable auto lighting optimize (everything auto I come across ), disable NR (high ISO and long exp), enable VF illumination, ETTL switched to average (use manual half the time anyway)...

No button / menu mappings so far, no experience to carry forward from my 400D here (but I am reading the manual as I get posts in here )

Also, a humble request to keep this thread sane and respect others' preferences. Afterall, customization is about personal preferences and best practices for different shooting styles. Lets share and spread.....
