[ALREADY DONE] one click custom white balance in liveview
« on: January 21, 2014, 10:05:52 AM »
I am using 60D, have been spending too much time to take a picture and then go through the menu and set the custom white balance.

it will be good if we can just point to something white/grey and click a button, and then it sets the custom white balance with reference to that area.

certainly I am not taking raw video, I need quick setup of custom white balance so I can start taking video as soon as possible.

Already exists.

Press AV button a couple of times while in live view.
Then press OK.

just got my camera to try, however, the arrow keys are just responding to move the focus box. tried to make some setting change to the "Arrow/SET shotcuts", but still not able to get this function

You have to press the AV button to cycle through the different functions of the arrow buttons and ok button.
While in LiveView.
