Menu Functions on Your Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D

You access many of the Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D camera's features via internal menus, which, conveniently enough, appear on the monitor when you press the Menu button, located atop the upper-left corner of the camera back. Features are grouped into the menus described in the table below.

Some menu functions and even entire menus appear only when you set the Mode dial to one of the advanced exposure modes (P, Tv, Av, M, and A-DEP). Similarly, the three Movie menus appear only when the Mode dial is set to the Movie setting.

After you press the Menu button, a screen similar to the one shown on the left in the following figure appears. Along the top of the screen, you see the icons shown in the preceding table, each representing a menu. Remember that which icons appear depends on the setting of the Mode dial.

Use the cross keys to navigate menus; press Set to access available settings.

The highlighted icon marks the active menu; options on that menu appear automatically on the main part of the screen. In the preceding figure, Shooting Menu 1 is active, for example.

After pressing the Menu button to display the menus, use these techniques:

  • To select a different menu: Press the right or left cross keys or rotate the Main dial to cycle through the available menus.

  • To select and adjust a function on the current menu: Press the up or down cross key to highlight the feature you want to adjust. On the left side of the preceding figure, the Quality option is highlighted, for example. Next, press the Set button. Settings available for the selected item then appear either right next to the menu item or on a separate screen, as shown on the right side of the figure. Either way, use the cross keys to highlight your preferred setting and then press Set again to lock in your choice.
