Cool Canon EOS 5D Mark II Feature: Quick Control Screen

Quick Control Screen

One of the cool new features in the Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR is the Quick Control screen.

You get to the Quick Control screen with one touch on the multi-controller (that’s the mouse-like button closest to the upper right corner of the LCD display). It pulls together all of the current camera settings into one display on the beautiful LCD screen – and – allows you to adjust them from there as well.

See a somewhat blurry example of Quick Control in the photo above – showing the camera in Aperture Priority mode. It’s very cool, handy and easy to use. – a very nice innovation from Canon.

[Update: See Jeff Lynch’s post – apparently the Quick Control screen was added with the introduction of Canon 50D last fall.]
