t6i/760d Audio meters not showing on lcd




Im trying to find a way to show the audio meters on the lcd since I can't put headphones in to monitor this would be pretty nice to have. But im having trouble finding it and begin to wonder if it's even possible?


My steps:


Put the camera on manual film mode

Go to the menu an put the audio also on manual there I see the beatifull meters bouncing away

Go back out of the menu no audio meters to be seen

Press info a couple of times showing al kinds of setting, oh look even a histogram but no audio levels..


The weird thing is I came across this:

(Canon EOS Rebel T6i / 750D For Dummies) 

[link removed per forum guidelines]

<But this does not work for me.


If anyone has an answer It would be much appreciated.



I believe the only way to see the meters is to use the menu.


did anyone ever answer this question? i just got a t6i for my bday and while i can see the audio levels in menu and have set them to where i like, i would like to be able to monitor them as i am shooting (i do a lot of interviews). anyone know if this can be done? putting the levels on display?



I did answer the question. The answer is "no". This is all the audio info you get when shooting a movie:


(Oh, and the T6i is the 750D, the T6S is the 760D)
