So I don't have a manual to the camera, have watched several videos, and yet, it still seems to escape me (embarrassing as this is admit) how to get my aperture selection back to the assigned dial and not have to go in manually under "Q" to adjust. Pretty much know what aperture I want when shooting, but recently needed to change it and realized in the viewfinder I keep seeing "L" and no amount of menu searching and customizing seems to change it. I know this is probably seriously basic stuff, however, now that I can't adjust F stop quickly (and without a manual) it's driving me crazy. Help! Please!
Solved! Go to Solution.
You need to check the status of the [LOCK] switch on the rear panel.
You can download an electronic PDF copy of the manuals from here.
There's no excuse for not having the manual for a camera this complicated. Why have you not downloaded it from Canon? You can also buy the printed manual, on ebay, from UsedPhotoPro.com, and elsewhere, both the original book and printed-out in 8.5x11 size.
It's responses like this that make people hesitant to ask questions. The next time you respond of your own choice, to someone asking for help, especially in regards to "a camera this complicated," I would urge you to be more considerate.
