6D Mark II Exposure Simulation

Hello,

My 6D Mark II was purchased in 2019 with firmware 1.0.2, and it doesn't have the Exposure Simulation function. Recently I saw the updated manual have that function (ref pp 303) So I thought it was the firmware that I need to update. So I downloaded and updated to v1.1.1, the latest. However, it didn't help. It still doesn't have Exposure Simulation as shown in the new manual. (There are only 4 subtabs instead of 5 under the first menu tab) What else do I need to do?

Thanks in advance!

Ah never mind. I figured out: I have to get into the Live View shooting mode first, from there I start the menu. Only then the 5th subtab would appear!

Often times not all tabs in the Menu are displayed if you aren't in a Creative Mode. Be sure camera is in P, Tv, AV or M.
