Beep on 7D MK2

I cant seem to get the beep for focus lock when using anything but "auto mode". Is this normal? Yes it is activated in the menu.

That is odd. You did not set up any custom functions C1 - C3 or something like that? Mine works in every mode.

Go to Menu, Camera 1 tab, and ensure that you have Beep enabled.

Beep is enabled and still no beep unless in auto mode.

Re: Beep on 7D MK2

Are you in AI Servo AF? Beeper will then not sound as confirmation ...

Change it to One Shot AF.

AHHH. Problem solved. Thanks Paul.  Is it like that with all Canon DSLR's?   I've had other Canons and never noticed.

Hi. Yes this is one of the many Canon defaults, unfortunately ...
I panicked too, when it happened the first time.

Re: Beep on 7D MK2

Is that the same on Canon EOS 7D camera's ?  Mine never beeps.  I'm wondering if there's a setting that I'm not enabling.  I am on automatic focus and Using One Shot.

Re: Beep on 7D MK2

I'm in the unfortunate position that due to my age I have greatly reduced hearing in the high frequencies and can only just hear the beep on most cameras. My wife who has the hearing abilities of a bat always complains that they are too loud Smiley Frustrated
