Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D) Custom Functions

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT (350D)

The Digital Rebel XT has 9 custom functions which users can set to control a number of camera functions. The following is a list of the EOS Digital REbel XT custom functions:

  • Custom Function # 1 changes the functions of the SET button and the cross keys and provides for quick and easy access to frequently used functions. The five choices are: 0, Normal; 1, SET button controls image recording quality; 2, SET controls processing parameters; 3, SET controls image playback; 4, cross keys control AF point selection.
  • Custom Function # 2 enables the dark noise subtraction noise reduction function for long exposures. It provides clearer images of night scenes or the night sky but doubles image processing time between exposures.
  • Custom Function # 3 sets the flash sync speed in aperture priority auto mode to a fixed 1/200 second or leaves the sync speed on auto/slow sync.
  • Custom Function # 4 determines selectable functions for the shutter and AE lock buttons. The four choices are: 0, AF/AE lock; 1, AE lock/AF; 2, AF/AF lock, no AE lock and 3, AE/AF, no AE lock.
  • Custom Function # 5 controls the AF-assist beam. The three choices are ON, OFF and fire only the external flash.
  • Custom Function # 6 controls whether manually-adjusted exposure level increments are in 1/2 or 1/3 stop units.
  • Custom Function # 7 enables the mirror lockup function. When Custom Function # 7-1 i selected, the mirror locks up when the shutter button is pressed completely. The shot is taken when the shutter button is released and then pressed completely again. The maximum mirror lockup duration is 30 seconds, after which the mirror returns.
  • Custom Function # 8 controls whether the E-TTL II autoflash system operates in its evaluative mode or its averaging mode.
  • Custom Function # 9 determines whether the built-in flash or an accessory Canon EX-series Speedlite is synchronized to fire after the first shutter curtain completes its travel or just before the second shutter curtain begins to move.
