I am usually not a big fan of reading the user manual of my camera, so this thread is for those who haven't read it.

My question is to people who have mastered this camera, and know everything about it inside out.. Are there any features which you think the majority of the owners don't know about in this camera? Please share your knowledge here...

For example, so you get the idea of what i'm talking about in terms of this thread: When I had my T3i i had no idea that it had an inbuilt trigger for external flashes (no one mentioned it in any video reviews as well when comparing T2i and T3i).

I could not imagine spending 3500.00 on a camera and then asking others to read the manual for me.

I agree with the tasteless sig. Very offensive just reading it.

you have got to be kidding me.. you ignored me for having a joke in my signature and telling you to take life lightly?.. neither did i use any offensive language to you or acted like a 12 year old in any way.. i guess some people just need to stop getting their panties in a wad.

I guess the only person acting like a immature child here is you my friend.

Also its "does".. not "dose".

L is like AIDS, once you get it.. it'l never leave you!

This signature is in bad taste. Based on your responses to people pointing this out I assume you are trolling. Change it or don't, up to you, but do not expect to be taken seriously around here until you do change it.

Most black humor is also in bad taste, and most of us are not okay with it. The difference is that it usually isn't in someones signature, thus appearing in everything they post. It is just a one time bad joke in bad taste. Big difference.
