I changed some settings and now have a circle the middle of my Live View screen and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. Can anybody help? Thanks.

when all else fails, read the manual

Thank you so much for your helpful reply. Circle in the middle of my Live View screen is not in the index and after twenty minutes looking for help I gave up.

I have found that in some cases Douglas Klostermann's 5DIV guide is quite helpful.

During both Spot and Partail Metering there is a Circle in the LV.


Turn on LV. Press the Q button and select different metering modes. You'll see the two middle ones (Spot and Partial) outline the metering zone with a circle (so you know what you are metering on). Evaluative and center-weighted use the entire image area, so no circle is needed or shown.
