How to Create a Custom Menu on Your Canon EOS 6D
Do you have a set of menu commands you use frequently on your Canon? How cool would it be not to have to sift through all 4,000 commands in your camera menu? That’s right, you can cut to the chase and create your own custom menu with your very own favorite commands. To create a custom camera menu:
1Click the Menu button.
The last-used menu displays.
2Use the Quick Control dial to navigate to the my Menu Settings tab.
The Quick Control dial is useful and can access many features.
3Press the Set button.
The my Menu Settings dialog box displays. The Register option is highlighted when you first open the menu.
5Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight a command and then press Set to register it.
A dialog box appears asking whether you want to register the command in your custom menu.
6Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight OK and then press Set.
The command is grayed out on the list. Repeat steps 5 and 6 to continue adding commands to your menu. When complete, press the Menu button.
You’re returned to the my Menu Settings dialog box. You have the following commands at your disposal:
Sort: Press Set and then your menu commands display. Select a menu command and press Set to display an up-and-down arrow next to the command. Use the Multi-controller or Quick Control dial to move the command up or down in the list and then press Set when the command is in the desired position. Repeat for other commands you want to move. Press the Menu button when finished.
Delete Item/Items: Press Set to display all commands on your menu. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight a command and then press Set to delete it. This opens a dialog box asking you to confirm deletion. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight OK and then press Set. Press the Menu button to return to the my Menu Settings dialog box.
Delete All Items: Press Set to reveal a dialog box that asks you to confirm deletion of all registered items. Rotate the Quick Control dial to highlight OK and then press Set to finish the task.
Display from my Menu: Press Set to reveal the options. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight Enable and then press Set. The my Menu tab is selected. The last menu used opens first by default. However, if you put all your frequently used commands on a custom menu, you won’t have to use the other menu tabs very often.
