6d display item

I am new to this so I am sorry for the probably stupid question...

When I take a picture, I believe in RAW, and view the result there is a small number% displayed in the center. What is it related to?

Thanks!Smiley Wink

In the center of the picture?  I have no recollection of ever seeing anything like that on my 6D LCD display.  It can display the it focus point, which might resemble a red zero, but not multiple digits or words.  Not in the center of the image.

Hopefully this link works. It has a little square and says 22%

Re: 6d display item

Is that the metering percentage ?

I saw this in the Magic Lantern. The percentage figure is variable.

Ok, I will have to do some research on it. I know about the metering modes, but I did not know there was a percentage related somehow.
Thank you for steering me someplace where I can learn more!

I see "22%".  I see the word "OVER" near the lower right corner.  I see a display that looks overexposed.''

 

If you're having trouble with Magic Lantern, then you're pretty much on your own around here.  We don't use it, or discuss it.

"WE don't use it, or discuss it"

 

Really ? Since when ?  I hope that "WE" doesn't represent all the forum members or viewers.

 

I can understand if Canon won't encourage users to install hacks for obvious reason.

 

May be Waddizzle the esteemed contributer should allow people to mention any problems relating to Canon cameras caused by whatever reasons here. (If we need your permission at all)

 

A lot of us are here to share experience and to learn. PLease do not scarce inexperienced canon users away. My posts are intent to help (actually, it's just to point out)  and not to encourage ML or hacks. I didn't even go into details of the problem or solutions.

 

ML is quite popular out there. Users should go to their website/forum to seek assistance.

 

OP do not feel offended. There are still a lot of contributors who are nice and will direct you to the related direction.

 

Cheers.

Re: 6d display item

The guidelines say that posts will be removed that:

"Promotion of third party products, promotions, websites, organizations, goods or services."

 

Which hinges on parsing "support" as not "promotion" which is so close to the line that it is probably better not to discuss Magic Lantern.
