Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
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!
And u had this menu option before and it is listed in the user operation manual?

Are you certain you are looking in the Right most utility menu?
It sounds like you are already in the creative zone mode of M AV or TV.

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.

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.
