Customizing Menu Screen Colors

Beyond the few options that the camera offers does anyone know of a way to customize the color scheme of the menu screen on my Rebel t6. Maybe a plug-in or download?

To provide that would require an addition to the camera's firmware, and Canon quite naturally doesn't provide any guidance to assist users in monkeying with the firmware. And I think there's a good case to be made that if Canon wanted to increase the size of the firmware, there are more useful features that could be added.

 

I suppose it's possible that Magic Lantern, which operates by using a different firmware package to override the one resident in the camera, may provide such a capability. But few of us use ML, and some of us aren't even convinced that it's provably safe (to the camera) to do so.

My T5 only allows for changes to the LCD brightness.  I suspect the T6 would be similar, brightness control only.

I don't believe ML offers that, maybe a new version does that I am unaware of.  But if it did, I still would not use it and I would advise others to not use ML either.  But its your camera and you should do as you see fit.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.
