Hi all

After playing with the settings on my 7d for the last couple of months i decided to do a hard reset as i wanted to default to factory.
I removed both batts and left the camera for around 10mins, installed both batts again and was met with the set date/time screen.
Sweet except my picture style settings were still stored and my name was still registered in the copyright info screen,
Custom functions were reset though,does this sound right as i thought a hard reset totally wiped the camera clean?
Many thanks for your help.

You reset the volatile memory. There is a custom function to reset the settings. My 7D isn't in front of me, but it's in the menu somewhere.

Yep i have reset the other functions now although it still retained my copyright info, i would have thought there would be a way to totally default a fresh set up but it would seem not. So the camera has a flash memory?
In that case all those that attempt to hard reset to get rid of gremlins etc dont really achieve or change anything?

"Clear all camera settings" is in the menu, which might be what you're looking for.

Hiya, yes that cleared the settings but left info such as copyright and a couple of other bits and bobs intact. I was expecting some kind of master reset to total default so it was kinda minty box fresh reset, that would be handy from a resale point of view especially if copyright info didn't get manually cleared as an over sight.

AH! When I read "both batteries" I thought that, but he has a grip! That could mean either.

Also, Canon told me 30 minutes without batteries, not 10. Not sure if they were just being cautious though.
