Hopefully this is a simple question. Is there a quick way to toggle the viewfinder grid lines on and off without delving each time into the menu system please

TIA

Only way I can think of off the top of my head is to save it as custom settings. But then you'd also be stuck with whatever shooting mode you saved from (Av, Tv, M, etc...)

can't make it a custom button, you could make a My Menu entry for quicker access to it. Why do you need to be able to toggle it so quickly?

Thanks for the suggestion. I use the grid to help with composting but find it distracting so being able to toggle would have been a help to me. Perhaps it's just Canon''s way of making me slow down ;-)a

maybe using it more will help? I only notice it when trying to align with a horizontal or vertical object..

Took a break from the wildlife photography today and went out for some walks through some of the nearby woods and ponds. Conditions were a bit challenging with the intermittent cloud cover this morning and the winds were gusting something fierce. Managed to walk away with a few shots that I liked.
