Shooting Modes on Canon Rebel T6i

You will have probably noticed the large dial with a myriad of symbols on the top right corner of the Canon Rebel T6i. This is your shooting mode selector dial, and switching between the different modes causes your camera to behave differently based on the mode selected. Let’s go over all the shooting modes of your Canon T6i and what each of them helps you accomplish:

The Mode Dial has ten different shooting mode selections, and can be largely separated into two categories: the Basic Zone, and the Creative Zone. The two zones determine a number of settings that are either set automatically or manually. Basic Zone shooting modes enable the user to simply point and shoot, without having to adjust most settings manually in order to get a well exposed and in-focus photo. Creative Zone shooting modes put more control in the hands of the user who would prefer to adjust more parameters by hand.

The Basic Zone modes are:

  • Scene Intelligent Auto (Green A in box). This mode is the most basic mode where the camera does almost everything automatically. All you have to do is point and shoot. The camera will focus on the subject when the shutter is half pressed, and will automatically adjust ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and flash for the best exposure.
  • Disabled flash (Box with line through lightning symbol) (Intelligent Auto with disabled flash) is exactly the same as Scene Intelligent Auto without flash, for situations where bright flashes are discouraged or not allowed.
  • Creative Auto (letters CA inside box) gives you a unique feature as well as control over a handful of settings. In Creative Auto, you can make the background of your image blurry so that your subject stands out, adjust the ambience to give the photo a different mood, and change both the drive and flash modes.
  • Special Scene Mode (SCN) has seven settings available to dial in the most useful settings for some of the most common situations. Available modes in Special Scene are: Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports, Night Portrait, Handheld Night Scene, and HDR Backlight Control.

Creative Zone modes are less limited, and give more user control over various aspects of shooting. You are free to adjust Autofocus modes and zones, metering, and more.

The Creative Zone modes are:

  • Program AE (P). In Program, the camera automatically sets the shutter speed an aperture, leaving the exposure adjustments left to you. You can also use Program Shift, which lets you shift (using the main dial) the automatic balance set between the shutter speed and aperture for even more control.
  • Shutter-priority AE (Tv) automatically locks in the exposure and aperture so that you manually control the shutter speed. This is a great creative tool to to either add or subtract movement from your shots by using slower or higher shutter speeds.
  • Aperture-priority AE (Av), as you might guess, the final of the three priority modes, giving you manual control of the aperture of your camera while automatically setting shutter speed and exposure. Adjusting the aperture gives you control of how much of your shot is in (or out of) focus.
  • Manual (M) puts all three of the main adjustments in your control. Using the two control dials and the ISO button, you’re given free reign over everything to compose the shot to your liking.
  • Bulb (B) is a mode wherein the camera shutter stays open for as long as you are holding down the shutter button. Bulb mode is useful for long exposure photography, and is meant to be used with the camera on a tripod (don’t try to handhold the camera and expect a decent photo in Bulb mode).

Custom Functions & Advanced Settings on Canon Rebel T6i

To get the absolute most out of your camera and to customize its operations to your exacting preferences, the Canon Rebel T6i includes thirteen advanced features for fine-grain control and customization. Check out our guide to the Canon T6i’s Custom Functions:

To access the custom functions, open the camera’s Settings menu, navigate to the second-to-last tab (the last tab with a wrench icon), then open the Custom Functions (C.Fn) menu. Scroll to the left and right to view each function.

  1. Exposure level increments
    This function can be adjusted to ⅓-stop or ½-stop, and changes how much each click of the main dial adjusts the exposure compensation increment. Selecting the ⅓-stop option allows finer control over exposure control, whereas the ½-stop option makes larger adjustments faster.
  2. ISO expansion
    Setting this function on will increase the highest selectable ISO for still photos up to ISO 25600 and movies up to 12800. This option is disabled when #3: Highlight Tone Priority is enabled.
  3. Highlight tone priority
    Enabling Highlight Tone Priority will improve the detail in highlight areas of photos. However, this often introduces more noise overall in your images.
  4. AF-assist beam firing
    Adjusts the quick initial burst of the flash unit that aids in obtaining focus while using flash. There are four options: Enable will use the AF-assist beam whenever necessary, Disable will turn the beam off entirely, External flash only will only use the beam when using an external flash unit, and IR AF assist beam only will use only the infrared AF-assist beam equipped on Canon Speedlite external flash units.
  5. AF area selection method
    Lets you adjust how the autofocus area is selected. By default (option 0), you can toggle between the AF area modes by pressing the AF area selection button. Option 1 lets you use the main dial to switch between the area modes after pressing the AF area selection or AF point selection buttons.
  6. Auto AF pt sel.: Color Tracking
    Auto AF Point Selection: Color Tracking is a function that alters the autofocus to recognize and prioritize skin tone colors. This function works in One-Shot AF and when Zone AF or 19-Point AF Auto is selected for the AF Area selection mode.
  7. AF point display during focus
    Adjusts when the AF point is displayed. Option 0 will constantly display the selected AF point, option 1 will constantly display all 19 AF points; option 2 will display the selection AF point during AF point selection, when the camera is ready to shoot, and when focus is achieved; option 3 will display the selected AF point during selection and when focus is achieved; and option 4 will only show when selecting an AF point.
  8. VF display illumination
    Sets when the AF points and grid seen in the viewfinder will illuminate with red light (as red light is less disruptive in low light conditions). Option 0 sets the viewfinder to illuminate in red only in low-light conditions, option 1 will enable red illumination at all times, and option 2 will disable red illumination entirely.
  9. Mirror lockup
    Lets you move the mirror away before taking the photo, thus eliminating vibration from the mirror’s movement. Check out our article How to Use Mirror Lockup to learn more.
  10. Shutter/AE lock button
    Controls the operations of auto exposure and autofocus when pressing the shutter button.
  11. Assign SET button
    This option lets you set a number of functions for the SET button when shooting. Options that can be selected are: Normal (disabled), Image quality menu, Flash exposure compensation, LCD Monitor On/Off, Menu, ISO Speed menu, and the Flash Function Settings menu.
  12. LCD display when power ON
    This function sets what is displayed on the LCD when the camera is powered on. Can be set to the default Display on, and shows the current shooting settings, or Previous display status, and will use whichever display mode in use when the camera was turned off. This option can be useful in conjunction with toggling the LCD display off to conserve battery life.
  13. Retract lens on power off
    On STM-equipped lenses, the camera will retract the lens to its shortest physical length when the camera is powered off with this function enabled. Lens will not retract even with this function enabled with the Auto power off setting enabled.

How to Use Mirror Lockup on Canon Rebel T6i

If you have been taking photos for any length of time, you know that to achieve the most tack sharp photos possible in any situation, the camera needs to move a little as possible, and zero movement if at all possible. This is especially true if you are taking long exposure shots and when the lens is wide open. The most obvious and prevalent method for keeping a camera still is to use a tripod, and this helps tremendously. The next step for even less movement is to use a self timer or remote shutter to get your hands off the camera when the shot is taken. But can we go even farther? The way a DSLR works is that a mirror sits between the sensor and the lens to reflect the view to the viewfinder. The mirror then swings out of the way when a shot is taken to expose the sensor. The swinging motion of the mirror, though small, causes a bit of vibration in the camera.

The Canon Rebel T6i includes a feature called Mirror Lockup that will let you move the mirror away before taking the photo, thus eliminating vibration from the mirror’s movement. In conjunction with other stabilization methods such as a tripod and remote shutter or self timer, this is the best way to get the stillest photograph possible. Here’s how to use Mirror Lockup:

  • Enable Mirror lockup by opening the settings menu, navigating to the second-to-last tab and opening the Custom Functions menu, then scroll to page nine. Select Enable to enable the Mirror Lockup function.
  • Return to shooting, and configure your camera for your shot. Mirror Lockup mode should be used in conjunction with a tripod and remote shutter.
  • Press the shutter button to move the mirror up and out of the way of the sensor.
  • Press the shutter button again to take a photo. Once the photo is taken, the mirror will swing back into normal position.

A couple notes on using Mirror Lockup:

  • The mirror will be swung up and out of the way of the sensor between the two shutter button presses for thirty seconds, at which point the camera will automatically return the mirror. During shutter lockup, most camera functions are disabled (remote shutter and self timer are enabled).
  • Mirror Lockup Mode will be enabled for as long as the setting is enabled in the Settings menu. Turn Mirror Lockup off when finished.
  • The mirror in the camera serves the ulterior functionality of protecting the sensor when photos aren’t being taken. When the mirror is in lockup, the sensor is exposed and can be damaged from extended exposure to sun or bright lights. Don’t wait too long between the first and second shutter releases in Mirror Lockup mode.

How to Use Quick Control on Canon Rebel T6i

Did you know the Canon Rebel T6i’s LCD monitor is also a touchscreen? Yeah? Did you also know that, combined with Quick Settings, using the touch screen is one of the fastest ways to view and adjust almost all of your camera’s settings in one convenient location? Check out how to use Quick Control on your Canon T6i:

  • Quick Control is accessed by pressing the Quick Control button (the letter Q inside an outline) towards the top right corner of the LCD monitor on the back of the camera.
  • Pressing this button brings you into the Quick Control menu where you can adjust a myriad of camera settings.
  • The settings shown in the Quick Control menu depends on the shooting mode you’re currently in.
    • Creative Zone modes allow more adjustments than Basic Zone modes.
  • Any setting with a gray outline can be tapped on to get a description of the setting. Tapping again will bring you the adjustment for that setting.
  • Press the return arrow on-screen or the MENU button to return to the main Quick Settings page.
  • In Creative Zone shooting modes, the top row will be dominated by “the big three”; shutter speed, aperture, and ISO.
  • Below that, settings are organized roughly in order of most used at the top to least used at the bottom.

How to Use “My Menu” Feature on Canon Rebel T6i

You may have noticed the mysteriously empty last tab in the settings menu of the Canon Rebel T6i with just a single entry. This is a customizable settings menu where you can easily add six settings you use most so you can quickly come back to them without having to navigate through the extensive settings menu constantly. Here’s how to set up My Menu on Canon T6i:

  1. Select My Menu Settings in the last tab (with a star icon) of the settings menu.
  2. Select Register to My Menu.
  3. Add the first setting you wish to have quick access to.
  4. Continue adding up to six settings to add to My Menu.
  5. Press the MENU button to return to the My Menu Settings page.
  6. Open the Sort menu to customize the order that settings are shown in My Menu.

How to Use Wi-Fi & NFC on Canon Rebel T6i

With the growing popularity of smartphones as a person’s main camera, so too has the expectation of seamless and near-instant sharing of photos and videos wirelessly. DSLR camera manufacturers are following this technology curve by adding Wi-Fi functionality into their cameras to make it easier to use and to share photos and videos easily. Here’s how to use Wi-Fi and wireless remote shutter capabilities on the Canon Rebel T6i:

First, let’s start with a primer of what functions are enabled by having built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Canon has given the T6i the power to use Wi-Fi in almost any way imaginable. Our options include:

  • Transferring images directly between cameras
  • Connecting to a smartphone to view and transfer images as well as to use for remote shutter and previewing
  • Using EOS Utility on a computer for remotely operating the camera
  • Print photos directly from the camera to a network printer
  • Send images to Canon’s iMAGE GATEWAY collection of web services
  • Viewing media on a DLNA device such as a set top box or smart TV

Before using the camera for any of these functions, we must first choose which connection method we want to use. Based on what function we are trying to use, there are three ways Wi-Fi can be configured:

  • Camera Access Point mode creates and broadcasts a Wi-Fi network directly from the camera for other devices to connect to.
    • This mode can be used to connect to a smartphone for image playback and saving, using the EOS Utility, and printing with a wi-fi printer.
  • Infrastructure mode connects both devices to a shared Wi-Fi network currently in place (such as a home wireless router).
    • This mode can be used to connect to a smartphone for image playback and saving, using the EOS Utility, printing with a wi-fi printer, send images to web services, and to use with a DLNA device.
  • Ad-Hoc mode creates a Wi-Fi network on whatever device the camera will connect to. Essentially the opposite of Camera Access Point mode. This setting will require additional setup on the secondary device.
    • Ad-hoc mode can be used with computers and smartphones that support the creation of ad-hoc Wi-Fi networks.

Camera to Camera

For transfer between two cameras, you will need two compatible Canon EOS cameras. Any Canon camera with LAN capabilities from 2012 and newer should be compatible.

  1. To begin, turn on Wi-Fi/NFC in the settings menu by navigating to the first wrench icon and switching Wi-Fi/NFC to Enable.
  2. Make sure this same setting is enabled on the second camera.
  3. On the origin camera (the camera you want to transfer images from), select Wi-Fi Function, then select Transfer Images between cameras (a camera icon).
  4. You will be prompted to “Start connection on target camera”.
  5. Open the Wi-Fi Function menu on the target camera.
  6. Select the images on the origin camera you want to send to the destination camera.
  7. To send a single image, select the image you want to send, then select the on-screen button Send img Shown.
  8. To send multiple images, enable the checkbox in the top left corner of all images you wish to send, press the Quick Settings button (the Q inside an outline to the right of the LCD monitor), resize if desired, then press Send.
  9. Press the MENU button, then select OK to end the camera-to-camera connection.

Smartphone Connection

  4. When finished with playback, select Exit on the camera then OK to close the connection.

LCD Display Settings on Canon Rebel T6i

One of the biggest benefits of digital photography is being able to instantly see the images you capture using an on-camera screen. With today’s technology, we can even use these screens for live previews, additional information, and even touch screens for greater functionality. With the Canon Revel T6i, we get all these benefits in a high resolution, swiveling touch screen LCD display with tons of options and functions to make photography easier. Here’s what we can do with the LCD Display on the Canon T6i:

Let’s first go over the options related to the LCD Monitor. These settings can be found on the fourth tab of the settings menu.

  • Live View Shooting can be enabled to use the touchscreen monitor for a live preview of your shot.
  • Choose which AF method to use during Live View shooting.
  • Enable Continuous AF keep continuous focus on your subject.
  • Touch Shutter lets you touch the screen during Live View to simulate a full shutter button press.
  • Grid Display gives different grid options displayed on-screen. Check out our article Grid Display Modes on Canon T6i for more info.

There are two additional settings related to the LCD that can be found on the second wrench icon in the Settings Menu:

  • LCD Brightness allows you to adjust the brightness of the LCD Monitor to better match your environment. Brighter settings are better for environments with more light to better see the monitor, and vise versa.
  • LCD off/on Button can be set to Remains on, or Shutter button. When set to Remains on, the LCD Monitor will stay on when shooting, whereas when set to Shutter button, the LCD will turn off when the shutter button is pressed halfway.

Once your settings are configured to your liking, now it’s time to see how to use Live View shooting and what kind of info we can see with the LCD Monitor:

  • Ensure Live View shooting is enabled in settings, then press the Start/Stop button on the back of the camera to turn on Live View. This is the same view seen through the viewfinder, with some added information.
  • Pressing the INFO button will cycle through the various info screens that can be shown on the monitor. There are four views: image-only, basic settings, full settings, and full settings with histogram.
  • On any view with settings shown, any setting with a gray outline can be touched on the screen and adjusted.
  • At the top right, touch the Q icon to open Quick Settings, touch the magnifying glass to zoom the live preview, to the right of that is the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed buttons, and at the very bottom left is the button to enable Touch Shutter. When enabled, touching anyplace on the screen without a button will capture an image.

Image Adjustments on Canon Rebel T6i

In addition to the high quality images the Canon Rebel T6i is able to take, you are also provided image management and editing tools directly in-camera for added convenience and flexibility. Let’s go over the adjustments available for image and video files on the Canon T6i:

  • To view images and videos taken with the camera, press the Playback button to the right of the LCD monitor on the back of the camera. To scroll through the images, press left or right directional buttons, or swiping left and right on the touchscreen. The main dial by default will skip forward or back 10 images to quickly move through a set.
  • In image playback mode, the AE Lock and AF Point Selection buttons at the top right corner of the back of the camera can be used to zoom in and out of an image, and to increase or decrease the number of preview images on the screen. Pinching in and out on the touchscreen also provides the same functionality.
  • When previewing a single image or video, pressing the Quick Settings button to the right of the LCD monitor will reveal options for many of the image adjustments available:
    • On the top left, enabling Protect Images will prevent the image from being deleted accidentally.
    • Rotate Image gives the option to rotate the image to the left or right.
    • Rating can be set to off, or to rate the image anywhere from 1 to 5 stars. This is a useful feature when sorting through images and finding your favorites later.
    • Creative Filters lets use choose from one of the Creative Filters, such as Grainy B/W, Fish-eye effect, Miniature effect and more.
    • Resize gives you the option to choose from one of the preset resolution options: Off to turn off resizing, M for 11MP size, S1 for 5.9MP size, S2 for 2.5MP, and S3 for 0.3MP.
    • On the right side, the first selection is the return arrow that will step out of the quick settings menu and return to image preview.
    • Cropping takes you to the crop selection tool, so that you can cut down any and all edges of the image.
    • AF Point Display shows the point where Autofocus was used on the image to show where the image is focused to.
    • Below this, we find the option to set how the main dial functions during image preview. This can be set to scroll through one image at a time, ten images, one hundred images, jump by date, by folder, movies only, photos only, or by rating.
    • When Wi-Fi is enabled, the last option provides a shortcut to Wi-Fi functions.
