Re: How to set BBF ON 60D

Hi Beckyk!

 

Perhaps the easiest solution in this case would be to give our all-American tech support team a call! They're at 1-800-OK-CANON (800-652-2666). They'll be happy to walk you through setting up back button focus on your EOS 60D!

Re: How to set BBF ON 60D

"I think I need # 3 do I have to push the AE-on button to start meter and then push the * button to lock it OR just let go of the AE-ON button."

 

"yes I did see that and I read it all but I'm sorry but I'm so confused. " 

 

You have to go into your Custom Functions Menu Screen, Custom Function IV, custom parameter 1, not number 3.  Can you find the Custom Function settings in your Menu screens?

 

You want to assign "Metering & AF Start" assigned to the "AF Start" button.  The article suggests selecting options 1, 2, 3, or 4 will set up back button focus, but each setting will have a slightly different behavior.

yes I was able to find it, thanks. And I believe I have it set now.
I'm going to call canon just to make sure I have it right. THanks again for all your help.
