Hi,
I've got a question regarding Back Button Focusing.
I have finally found this and love it on the 100D but can't find how to turn it off!.....mainly for my wife who uses this camera occasionally and is not familiar with BBF.
It should be easy to do but apart from reverting to factory settings just cant find how?
Thanks.

EDIT: Ah, found it.....Custom Settings....Clear Settings......Clear All Custom Functions

Should disable if you just switch it to Auto also I believe. Whenever I ask someone, 'take a picture of us?' i move it over first.

sure. I just bought one 4 months ago as a smaller alternative to my 6D, and as a better video camera (AF) than the 6D.

Canon refurb has been having some great deals from time to time.

That's exactly my thinking... I have the 6D but would like something smaller.

Just bought a used SL1 body and 24mm pancake off ebay.

I wonder how the ergonomics will be. Lack of top display and many of the control buttons should take a little while to get used to.

yes. It was a heck of a deal, body, 18-55 STM, and 75-300, for $289

I sold the 75-300 for 80 bucks, and my old XSi and it's 18-55 USM II for $200

seems like late July/August is the good time Canon makes better deals

having the XSi i was use to using the much smaller camera. I adjust exposure settings through the viewfinder anyway, so the missing top screen is no big deal. The SL1 has a touch screen, so that is big improvement in making adjustments over my older camera and makes the interface easy to adjust to, except that you have to look at the screen for anything other than exposure.

just having the smaller body in hand is enough to subconsciously cue my mind/hand that I need to do something different. It really is tiny in comparison so I have not had a problem going back and forth. That said, there hasn't been a whole lot of back and forth, I probably don't have a thousand clicks on the SL1 yet LOL

The SL1 has been out for a few years now. Has there been any new upgrades to the camera, as the model number is the same as originally released?

Thanks,
Craig

canon does not make changes (outside of fixes) to camera models without fully changing the name or adding Mark II to the name ... and Mark II is reserved for the pro/high end cameras.

There are rumors of a SL2 but right now we also expect a new 5D MkIV and a 6D MkII. They might intro two at a time, but if they did that I would expect it to come alongside the 6D which is not due for 8 months or so.

Those are the two cameras I'm waiting for next to hit the market. Ok, the wife wants the 5D4 and I would like a SL2 as a carry around camera in place of carrying my 5D3.
