Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

You did switch the lens to manual focus, right?

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

Partial (good-enough for me) work-around: While I couldn't find a way to remove the white box or the face-detection boxes, you can use the arrow buttons to move the white box around the display on the T3i.  I moved it to the bottom right corner, which will be fine for acting as a general webcam.  The SET button will reset it to the center of the display, but otherwise it'll stay put.  You can even power down and power up the camera and the box will stay where you left it.

 

Another possible choice is that you can switch to movie mode, and start a recording.  Now the boxes dissapear (yay), but a red recording-dot appears in the top corner.  The recording is probably not what you're afterm but you can still stream the display to your computer via HDMI while recording.  I haven't tried doing this approach for more than a minute, but I assume it would be inturrupted by running out of space on the memory card.  So, you could lower the resolution to the lowest setting if you go this way to have it last as long as possible between deleting the recording.

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

I figured it out.
1. Be in Movie mode
2. In menu af mode enable :-) love mode
3. Turn ON auto focus on the lens itself. If you have af off you cannot make the box go away.
Tada!
You can still manually focus the lens just do so gently as you are forcing gears that should typically be allowed to work without assistance and you could damage your lens at least I would be afraid you could so do this at your own risk. If you press the shutter to auto focus a small Box (smaller than before) will still display “detecting faces” if you have that option enabled. Best choice though for me is gentle manual focus.
Good luck!

Step 2 was supposed to read as :-) live mode not love mode.....

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

Hmm - I tried those steps just now, but that seems to put it into 'put a targetting rectacle on faces' mode. As soon as my face is in front of it, the tagetting boxes track my face.  Are you using it with a person (e.g. as a webcam)?

I put my metering timer setting to the highest time, 30 min, in my case. AF Mode on "Live Mode". Camera is on Movie Mode and I have to set it to record. The lens is on MF setting.

I think that resolved the moving target track box. Unsure if the 30 min timer runs out, it activates the target box again. Will follow up after a long Zoom call and see if it works.

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

write back what you find... im trying to use the t3i as a camera for live streaming church services.  obviously i cant have anything on the screen like the white box.  im using camtwist as the software and not had any issues before using webcams, but they are only good for wide shots and even then its just ok.

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

My boyfriend is using this camera to stream, he moved the focus box into the corner and used his stream software to crop it out. Don't know if this is still an issue but hope this helps someone!

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

HI i was having the same problem. and although i don't the correct solution to the problem, i do have a work around! And it is to turn the camera upside down because then the live face focus wont recognize your face. And in your streaming app, you flip the camera upside down so that the image is right side up in the stream. 

 

I hope this made sense

Re: T3i LiveView white outline box overlay removal

I had the same issue. I had to turn on AF on my lens and the box went away. This thread just saved my life !!!!! LMBO I hope this helps. I hardly ever use auto focus so I almost missed this detail ....
