Custom functions option missing from menu

I don't have the custom functions option on my Rebel XT? On the menu it just shows Language, Video, Communication then Clear Settings. The custom functions option is missing. I've checked that I'm in the correct mode (M, AV, TV) but it never appears!

    That doesn't help i'm afraid. The custom functions option just doesn't appear in the menu on the camera. I've been through the user manual and it clearly states where it should appear but it's missing. I want to user function 9 (shutter curtain sync) but as I can't get into any custom functions (7 should be mirror lockup etc) it's impossible! Thanks.

    I had already tried to reset the default settings but have tried again just to be sure but it has made no difference. Unfortunately the camera is out of warrenty.

  • claire_crisp Nov 22, 2009

    Can anyone else help with this problem? I've tried reseting the camera to the original factory settings but the custom functions are still missing completely from the menu? As the camera is out of warranty I do not have the option of returning it. Thanks.

Most EOS digital cameras offer custom functions. These allow you to alter the way the camera operates to suit your own personal needs. Exposure, focusing and flash are just some of the areas covered by the functions. Each function has a factory-defined default setting, plus one or more alternative settings.
Custom functions are set through the camera menu system. Find and select ‘Custom Functions’ and you will bring up a screen with each custom function number displayed. Select the appropriate number and you will be taken to a screen where you can select from the various options for that custom function.
The display will usually indicate which functions are no longer at their default setting. You can either go to each function to change the setting, or go to the ‘Clear Setting: menu option’ to reset all the custom functions to the default settings.
On some models, it is possible to register up to three groups of custom function settings. This means you can change a number of different custom functions and save all these change under one group registration. This saves you the time and trouble of going through and changing each custom setting individually the next time you want to use the same set. You could, for example, have one group of settings for landscape photography, and another for sports shooting.
The number of custom functions varies from camera to camera, as does the reference number for a particular function. However, the list below, for the EOS-1D Mark III and EOS-1Ds Mark III, gives a guide to the type of camera functions that can be changed.
For previous generation cameras, a specific custom function is usually written as C.Fn.-XX-Y, where the first number (XX) is the custom function reference, and the second number (Y) is the selected option within that function. The default setting for each custom function is usually ‘0’. So custom function 12 (mirror lockup) is written as either C.Fn.-12-0 (lockup disabled) or C.Fn.-12-1 (lockup enabled). On the EOS-1D/Ds Mark III models as well as the latest generation of consumer level cameras like the EOS 40D, EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II, custom functions have been separated into four groups: Group I for Exposure, Group II for Image/Flash exp/Display, Group III for Auto focus/Drive and Group IV for Operation/Others.
These new settings are written as C.Fn XX-Y-Z where XX is the group, Y is the Custom Function and Z is the setting, for example C.Fn IV-3-1.

    the best option is to take you camera to a profession camera repair shop in your area .they have camera formatting software and reloading software.they will connect your camera to there pc and then transfer the settings in your camera.this will reset the camera by software and all the functions will be seen and work properly.
    thanks for keeping updated.


  • charlymonty Nov 23, 2009

    yes correct.but that software is required which the camera repair shop has to tranfer and reset the camera settings.at present if you press the clear settings in your camera without connecting it to the software then it will only clear the settings which your camera already have buut not reset the settings to default settings.

    get it checked at camera repair shop and ask them to connect your camera to their pc and tranfer the reset software and reset the settings.

    thanks for keeping updated.

If the custom function is missing then you might want to reset your Rebel to factory defaults. You can refer to the illustration, page 35 on this manual.

If this is a new camera, you can avail the warranty and have it replaced.

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and...


In addition to resetting all the camera settings you should also choose the "clear all custom functions" option that is also available from the same menu. Once that's done. Put the camera in Full Auto mode and see if the issue is resolved.

Sai.

To clean the sensor, you need mirror lock-up if you're going to do it by hand. I don't know if your camera has a built-in dust removal feature.

How do I recent my Canon Digital Camera?


To reset factory defaults. Turn the dial to P (program). Turn on the camera. Hit the menu key. You will now see the extended menus. (if you don't turn to P you only get basic menu). Go to the last tab which is the second tools menu. Look down the menu and you'll see a "clear settings." Select this and you have two choices "clear all camera settings" and "clear all custom functions." Select "clear all camera settings." The "clear all custom functions" only applies if you've created custom functions which few people do. I hope this helps.

Auto focus does not work in creative modes


That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right. 8f5da8f.jpg
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. 7528356.jpg
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.

Auto focus does not work in the creative zone


Sounds like your custom functions have been changed to work this way. On the EOS 350 D it is Custom Function #04. To change it back to default you need navigate through Canon's menus. Here's how to get there: while in one of the creative zones go to your camera menu and navigate to the 5th tab on the right. Select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” from this tab. This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.
Happy shooting :-)

Can't find custom white balance


If your camera is on Auto then you will not have a Menu 2 tab. Turn it to Manual (M) then you will see if. At least that is how mine it. I am sure they are all the same.

I know this is probably too easy for you....


hi

look a the settings currently on your camera
turn the knob to full auto and then go to the menu and do a full reset of the unit (see page 100 of manual)
then progressively re-add your custom settings

another option is that you have the shutter set to timer mode
change to 1/multi to repair
