Default 7D Histogram highlight alert

Can you set the Highlight Alert to Histogram only? I would like to view blinkies on the histogram without seeing them on the Single Image Display.

No. The blinkies exist beyond the right side of the histogram.

So in a way the answer could be "yes", since if the histogram reaches the far right edge of the pane, then you probably have blinkies as well.

I think the OP might mean... is there a way to only have highlight alert enabled when viewing the image with the histogram on the screen, and not have the highlight alert enabled when viewing the image 'full-size' (ie. no histogram)...

If this is the case, I don't know of a way to do it, but would be interested to know if you find a way!

Aha. Then buy one of Canon's simplest EOS cameras, because that's the only option they have. My old EOS 400D, for example, works like that.

But you are right, the text "I would like to view blinkies on the histogram without..." could probably actually mean "I would like to view blinkies in the image when the histogram is shown, without..."

Thank you all! I guess the result is - there is no way to view highlight alert on 7D histogram without also seeing it on the Full image display also. A special thanks to apersson850, I have an old 500D that works like that too!

However, once you update your 7D to the 2.0.3 firmware version, then you can pretty quickly change if you want to see the highlight alert or not, by pressing the Q button from the image review screen, change the setting and just exit from the Quick adjust menu again. No need any longer to go all the way via the regular menu system to access this setting.
