Re: Back button on focus 6D MarkII

Hi, rdixit!

 

Thanks for your participation in the Canon Community! 

 

You can download all of the manuals for your 6D Mark II (along with updated drivers and software) directly from the Canon USA website HERE.

 

While you're on that page, you'll see all of our contact information at the top of the page for support, should you need one-on-one help with getting back button focus setup.

Quite honestly, I think contributors (including Canon support) spent more time giving the OP a hard time than you did contributing to his dilemma. If you had simply pointed him to page 497 of the manual, he probably could have figured it out. On Step 2, the OP's start point, hit Set. That'll take you to the step 3 screen. On step 3, you select the control and hit set, the next screen will be where you assign the function (metering only for BBF), hit Set. Then, going back to step 3, you select the next control down, which is AF-On, hit Set, next screen, select AF, hit Set. Then Menu to get back. Now, how hard was that?

Obviously a canned response. You could have easily said, "and go to page 497" and made your response useful.

He was told what pages to look at, and samples of those pages were posted.  If you had actually read the posts then you would have understood the problem was understanding the nomenclature and symbols.

 

[ Button ]. :  [ Function ]

 

Finding the page was not the problem.  It was understanding how to read it.  Thank-you.

I read all the post's threads. The pages identified were 500 and 501. Not 497, a more logical starting point.

“I am scrolling to C.FunIII. Then I get a series of pictograms, and I have no idea what to do to set up BBF. I am having trouble understanding which pictogram means what.

Gee, look at that.  Page 497 looks just like the screenshot that the OP posted, which is exactly what the OP does not understand.  The pictograms are not explained anywhere on that page.  Pages 500 and 501 explain which pictograms to adjust for BBF.  Thank-you.

Re: Back button on focus 6D MarkII

I see your point even tho the posting didn't have the entire manual page. I guess my thought is that there was a lot of wasted space with very little info imparted, whereas, a simple walk thru would've done the trick.
