- Enable the Touch Control option on Setup Menu 3. You can select Standard or Sensitive as the menu option; your choice determines how firm of a touch you need to use to get the touchscreen to respond.
- Shift to Live View mode. Just move that Live View switch to the camera position and then press the Start/Stop button.
- Look for the Touch Shutter icon in the lower-left corner of the monitor. By default, the touch-shutter feature is turned off, so the word Off appears with the icon.
- Tap the icon to toggle the touch shutter function on. You also can turn the feature on via Shooting Menu 5 (Live View).
- Compose your shot and then tap the subject on the monitor. If you’re focusing manually, the camera releases the shutter to take the picture. For autofocusing, the camera attempts to focus on the spot you tapped. If it’s successful, it releases the shutter to take the picture. If focus can’t be achieved, the camera won’t record the photo.
Turn off the touch-shutter function after you’re done using it. Otherwise, it’s easy to forget that the feature is enabled and accidentally take a picture when your tap is really meant to select an autofocusing point or zone.
