Shooting mode information
Pressing the INFO button with no reviewed image displays an overview of the current camera configuration, note that the Mark III provides two different info displays; Normal display and Shooting function display. In the latter mode the display can be used to change the settings shown without needing to look at the top LCD or into the viewfinder.
