I’ve been really busy on a few projects this week, but got a chance late this afternoon to have a real deep look at the menu system in the EOS 7D Mark II, and the new refined MyMenu is more of an à la carte experience.
MyMenu goes large
You can choose to create up to five My Menu tabs on the EOS 7D Mark II
The green tabbed My Menu has been in most EOS cameras since 2007 but the EOS 7D Mark II gets what can only be called My Menu Mark II.
You can choose to create multiple pages of My Menu tabs and the tabs you create can all have your chosen name of up to 16 characters.
As for other cameras with My Menu there is a configuration option that will ensure you got straight to the My Menu tab every time you press the menu button. EOS 7D Mark II adds the possibility to only display the configured My Menu tabs.
My Menu: Fast access to commonly used features
What this means is that you can configure the items you need in the MyMenu tabs speeding up your ease of using the camera. All the stuff you need is there to hand in a few simple menus – this camera has so much capability you’ll be glad of the simplification.
It also means that an experienced photographer can configure and EOS 7D Mark II and only offer access to the necessary functions for a second or junior photographer.
Jedi Master Menu
As a trainer it is really cool to have direct quick access to the most needed and otherwise hard to find settings on the Jedi Master menu 🙂
